Running alongside the Develop:Brighton conference on Wednesday 27 October and Thursday 28 October is the Expo. It's free for all visitors to attend and brings together some of Europe's most innovative companies from every sector of games development. Get up-to date with the latest tech and get hands on with all the games on display.
At the heart of the Expo is the Develop Bar & Networking Lounge sponsored by Unreal Engine so you don't have to go far to buy colleagues a drink, have an informal meeting or just mix with other visitors.
The Expo also features the Indie Showcase which demo's some of the best independently developed projects around - come and play the games and vote for your favourite.

Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
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!
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 is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

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 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!
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!
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
