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 2022 we had 3,473 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!"

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 a really great way to network, it’s also great for going to talks and finding that little tip that you didn’t know before and thinking – oh I’ll bring that back to the team!
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
It’s really nice to see some of the younger people in our studio come to Develop, interact with other people in the dev community and make new contacts. I think it’s really important to learn from other people.
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.
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 absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.

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.
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.
