Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
I’ve been to every single Develop in the last 12 years. One thing you get here is networking - you will meet the most amazing individuals in the video games industry.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
By coming to Develop what you get is the opportunity to network like you can’t in any other situation. Everyone knows everyone and it’s such a wonderful community feel.
Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers who are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton Digital 2020 - including taking a booth in the digital Expo or becoming a sponsor for the Conference and Star Awards.Contact us now!
