Tandem Events, organisers of Develop:Brighton, today announced an expanded three-day format for 2018’s Develop:Brighton.
After a successful 2017 conference and expo, which saw a record number of visitors, organisers Tandem Events has increased the number of tracks and sessions on offer to delegates for the 2018 event taking place at the Hilton Brighton Metropole from Tuesday 10 to Thursday 12 July.
Evolve, the one-day track curtain raiser to the conference, will now feature across the full three days of Develop:Brighton. Add to this a brand new Discoverability track, dedicated to helping developers get noticed, Develop:Brighton 2018 will consist of eight tracks: Design; Art; Audio; Business; Coding; Evolve; Indie and Discoverability across all three days.
“By incorporating Evolve into the main conference, this allows us to offer more content and choice across all three days, so it is easier for all those in the development community to focus on the topics that really matter to them,” commented Andy Lane, managing director, Tandem Events.
“Each year, we always strive to deliver a programme that is relevant and insightful to today’s development community. With more developers self-publishing, discoverability is an issue many come across. Our new Discoverability track is aimed at helping those who have great ideas get noticed and nurture their community. For those thinking about submitting a session, be clear on who your talk is aimed at and outline the take-away an attendee would get from listening to you. Good luck!”
Call for speaker submissions is now open for Develop:Brighton 2018 and applicants have until 14 March to submit proposals at www.developconference.com.
Those planning to submit a session should visit the Develop:Brighton website (www.developconference.com) where you can find more information about the session tracks, what makes a good submissions and ideas for talks.

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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.

If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.
