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 sut 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).

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.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
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.
There really is a huge mix of people at Develop - loads of peers that you can learn from and the perfect blend of every element of game development as well.
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!
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 very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
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.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
