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.

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.
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!
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
We are so lucky to have Develop here in the UK. It’s a unique event where you can come and discover new things with people who care passionately about video games. It’s a sea full of new ideas.
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.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
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!
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.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2020 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
