What’s On

Develop:Brighton is the only event in the UK that brings the entire game-making industry together - from global superstars to micro indies, to learn from each other, share ideas and experiences, network and do business in a friendly and inclusive environment. 

It's also a serious commercial event where deals get agreed, new contacts are made, games are pitched and new IP's are signed. But it still feels like a fun, social gathering.

In 2024 we had 5,225 attendees!

Develop:Brighton is a busy 3 days! The conference runs across all 3 days starting on Tuesday 8 July and the Expo runs on days 2 and 3 - Wednesday 9 and Thursday 10 July. There's just as much happening after hours too - from official networking events, parties, the Develop:Star Awards and much more...
