Develop:Brighton brings together the game development community for three days to learn from each other, share experiences, keep up-to-date, network and do business. It's a serious commercial event where deals get agreed, new contacts are made, games are pitched and new IP's are signed. But also it feels like a fun, social gathering!
In 2021 we had 2,411 attendees!
"Develop:Brighton is especially unique - it’s by the seaside and there’s a lovely relaxed tone that goes with that. It’s where lots of people congregate from all sorts of backgrounds in gaming. The talks are cool, the networking is cool. And when your friend from another studio starts telling you about the game they’re working on that they shouldn’t really tell you about – that’s my favourite bit!"

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.
It’s fantastic to have such an event that provides this opportunity for all the game devs, indie devs and other organisations to get together to showcase what they do, meet and interact.
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.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.

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 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.
