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 - so you can even play games and share feedback with the creators. Don't forget to grab a beer in the Networking Bar sponsored by Unreal Engine.
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.

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.
One of the things I like about Develop is it brings people together from across Europe and the whole world. There is a very high level of professionals here, so you have company leaders having drinks with juniors from their community.

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.
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.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
Develop is important – the networking is very important. And go to talks they’re inspiring and get your creative juices flowing, they can make you think and you’ll learn how other people do things.
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.
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
