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:

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.
It’s fantastic to have such an event that provides this opportunity for all the game devs, indie devs and other organisations to get together to showcase what they do, meet and interact.
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

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.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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.

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: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!
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.

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!
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!
