Networking is a huge part of Develop:Brighton and something we know is super important to all our attendees. So in addition to the many social networking events during the day and after hours, we offer an online networking tool - Meet@Develop in partnership with BAFTA - which all registered visitors can use before the event and onsite to contact each other and set up meetings in a meeting zone within the Develop Expo.
The Meet@Develop meeting zone is located on the gallery level within the main Expo hall and tables are available to be booked on both Weds 10 and Thurs 11 July.
If you're a BAFTA member you can book meetings at one of the 5 dedicated BAFTA tables in the BAFTA members area - just enter your membership number when you login.
Meet@Develop goes live very soon - watch this space!
Meetings by choice, not chance.
Book your conference pass now with a 20% discount - you can save as much as £180!

Develop always gets put in the diary. There are many reasons to be here, not just the talks, but the networking, people exchanging ideas about where the industry is right now and where it’s going to. It’s pretty essential to be here I think.
Ian Livingstone, CBE
There really is a huge mix of people at Develop - loads of peers that you can learn from and the perfect blend of every element of game development as well.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
Jo Twist, OBE
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.
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.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
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.
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!
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.
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
