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.
Expo Opening Hours:
9.00 - 18.00 on Wednesday 27 October

I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.

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.
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

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!
I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
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: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.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
