After Hours

Networking Opportunities

Are you a developer with a game to pitch or a publisher looking for new IP?

Then you won't want to miss this event because Develop:Brighton brings together the entire game dev community for three days - it's a great place to network. We're big enough that it feels like the whole industry is here, but relaxed and small enough to make meeting people easy.

There are plenty of informal networking opportunities - bumping into people in between conference sessions, over a coffee or lunch, plus all the after hours events and parties in the evenings. Then there's the Expo where you can meet companies offering the latest tech and services or developers showcasing their games which you can play and share feedback with the creators.

If you'd rather not leave your meetings to chance, then use our online networking tool Meet@Develop to pre-arrange meetings with other attendees.
