There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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 absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
Jo Twist, OBE
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.
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.
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!
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2018 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
