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!
2019 was our biggest and best event ever with 2,871 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!"

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.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
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.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers who are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
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.
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.

Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

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.
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.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2020 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
