There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
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.
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 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.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.
