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.

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.
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.

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.
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.
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!
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
Develop is the must-attend event for the games industry in the UK. It’s where we all come together and learn from each other. It’s the best way into the industry and it’s the best place to learn from your colleagues.
