Develop:Brighton 2018 expands to three days

An expanded three-day format for Develop:Brighton 2018, Europe’s leading conference for the game development community, has been announced by organiser Tandem Events.

While the 2017 conference and expo saw a record number of visitors, the organiser has increased the number of tracks and sessions on offer to delegates for the 2018 event taking place at the Hilton Brighton Metropole from Tuesday 10 to Thursday 12 July.

Evolve, a track which usually only features on the opening day of Develop:Brighton, will now feature across the full three days. A new Discoverability track has also been added, meaning Develop:Brighton 2018 will consist of eight tracks: Design; Art; Audio; Business; Coding; Evolve; Indie and Discoverability across all three days.

“By incorporating Evolve into the main conference, this allows us to offer more content and choice across all three days, so it is easier for all those in the development community to focus on the topics that really matter to them,” said Andy Lane, managing director, Tandem Events.

“Each year, we always strive to deliver a programme that is relevant and insightful to today’s development community. With more developers self-publishing, discoverability is an issue many come across,” Lane added. “Our new Discoverability track is aimed at helping those who have great ideas get noticed and nurture their community. For those thinking about submitting a session, be clear on who your talk is aimed at and outline the take-away an attendee would get from listening to you. Good luck!”

Call for speaker submissions is now open for Develop:Brighton 2018 and applicants have until 14 March to submit proposals at
