“The GamesAid Poker Tournament at Develop:Brighton has raised thousands for a number of children’s charities over the past nine years and is now a regular and much-loved event in the game development industry calendar,” commented Mark Ward, GamesAid Ambassador. ”Without our new sponsors for 2018, Blazing Griffin, Games London and Keymailer, the event wouldn’t be possible, so huge thanks for their generous support. We’re very much looking forward to playing poker and continuing to fundraise for GamesAid at Develop:Brighton again this July.”
GamesAid is a UK-based video games charity which acts as an umbrella to support a number of smaller charities who help disadvantaged and disabled children and young people. It is a non-trading body, administered by Trustees who operate on a fixed term basis run by a Chair who is also appointed on a fixed term. As the only fully democratic charity in the games space, members of the games industry propose and vote for the charities of their choice annually. The charities who get the top number of votes then get an equal share of all the monies raised that year, proving that games and gamers can do great things for others.

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