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.

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.
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.

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 is the must-attend event for the games industry in the UK. It’s where we all come together and learn from each other. It’s the best way into the industry and it’s the best place to learn from your colleagues.
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.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
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 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!
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 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.
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!
