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 11 July and then 8am - 6pm on Tuesday 2, Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 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:

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’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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!
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.
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.
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.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.

People should come to Develop because it’s where the UK games industry meets.
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 a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
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!
