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 we're by the sea in July so it feels like a fun, social gathering!
2018 was our biggest and best event ever with 2,369 attendees!
“Develop:Brighton always gets put in the diary – it’s like a reunion of friends. 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.”

There’s a pretty good social element to Develop. A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers that are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
Develop seems much more informal and friendly than other events and that makes it stand out as a conference – people really look forward to Develop.
It’s the one opportunity in the year where it feels like so much of the UK development community is right here – it’s a great place to find out what people are up to and what are the latest trends.
