Hilton Brighton Metropole
If you'd like the convenience of staying at the conference venue, we have reserved a number of rooms at the Hilton Brighton Metropole at special discounted rates for our attendees.
More info coming soon.
If you don't mind a short walk from where you're staying to the conference, then there are many other options nearby to suit every budget - from hostels and B&B's to snazzy boutique hotels.
Brighton is only 50 minutes from London Victoria. Brighton railway station is just 5 minutes by taxi from the hotel. Trains leave from London every 30 minutes.
From London and the North take the M25. At junction 7 of the M25 turn onto the M23 (later becomes A23). From A23 join the A27 heading towards Worthing and take the exit sign posted Hove. At the top of the slip road take the 2nd left off the roundabout and proceed down Dyke Road. The Droveway is approximately 1.2 miles down this road, from here turn left onto Shirley Drive and head towards the seafront. Turn left and the hotel is in front.
Anyone staying at the Metropole hotel can benefit from the 200-space car park (it is chargeable and subject to availability).
London Gatwick International Airport is located only 30 minutes by road or rail from central Brighton. The airport enjoys direct connections to over 150 international destinations: delegates can fly in from all major European airports and from a wide range of US gateways.
London Heathrow, the world's best-connected international airport is approximately 90 minutes away by road via the M25 and M23 motorways.

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.
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 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.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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.
Develop is a really great way to network, it’s also great for going to talks and finding that little tip that you didn’t know before and thinking – oh I’ll bring that back to the team!
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.
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.
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!
