Every year we have a group of student volunteers who help make Develop:Brighton run smoothly. Many of our previous volunteers now have positions within the games industry from contacts they made at the event.
We'd need you to be available from 2 - 6pm on Monday 10 July and then 8am - 6pm on Tuesday 11, Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 July. Plus, you'll be invited to various networking and social events in the evenings.
This is not a paid position and we cannot pay for travel expenses or provide accomodation, however you will be given an all access 3 day conference pass and we do try and ensure that our volunteers get to see their chosen sessions.
As a Develop:Brighton volunteer duties will include directing delegates around the venue, bag stuffing, handing out bags, t-shirts etc, guarding doors and scanning badges, monitoring sessions and assisting speakers amongst other things.
If you're interested in volunteering for this year's Develop:Brighton, please contact Ali Fearnley:

I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
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!
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: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!
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.

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.

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.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
Jo Twist, OBE
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
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 - including taking a booth in the Expo or choosing one of the many sponsorship opporunities during the event or at the Star Awards.Contact us now!
