We are delighted that the reduction of Covid-19 restrictions, the vaccination programme and current government guidelines for running events mean we are able to hold Develop: Brighton in person this year. However, we realise that lifting restrictions does not mean the risks from Covid have altogether disappeared and we want to make all our attendees feel as safe as possible at the event.
Here’s what we’ll be doing to help protect attendees and we’d really appreciate your cooperation:
As a courtesy to other attendees we request that you:
This year’s conference programme will be live streamed and accessible via our Digital Pass, so if you feel uncomfortable attending Develop:Brighton in person you won’t miss out on any of the talks.
If you have purchased a Live Conference Pass but are unable to attend at the last minute for Covid-related reasons (feeling unwell, self-isolating, positive Covid test) then you will have already been sent an access link for the Digital event so you can still watch all the sessions online.
Thanks for your support in this and we wish you all an enjoyable and inspiring visit!
If you have any questions regarding our Covid Policy please contact us at:
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.
One of the things I like about Develop is it brings people together from across Europe and the whole world. There is a very high level of professionals here, so you have company leaders having drinks with juniors from their community.

It’s really nice to see some of the younger people in our studio come to Develop, interact with other people in the dev community and make new contacts. I think it’s really important to learn from other people.
I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
Develop is important – the networking is very important. And go to talks they’re inspiring and get your creative juices flowing, they can make you think and you’ll learn how other people do things.
Develop is the must-attend event for the games industry in the UK. It’s where we all come together and learn from each other. It’s the best way into the industry and it’s the best place to learn from your colleagues.
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.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
Develop:Brighton is especially unique - it’s by the seaside and there’s a lovely relaxed tone that goes with that.The talks are cool, the networking is cool and having the opportunity to catch up with people – that’s always the excitement for me!
Develop always gets put in the diary. There are many reasons to be here, not just the talks, but the networking, people exchanging ideas about where the industry is right now and where it’s going to. It’s pretty essential to be here I think.
