Develop Conference opens Call for Papers



Develop in Brighton

The call for papers for the Develop in Brighton conference has opened and prospective speakers have until 7th March to submit proposals.

The event, which launched in 2006, has grown year on year and is now Europe’s leading conference for the European game development community. Last summer’s conference attracted 1,667 attendees, an increase of 54 per cent on the launch year and a three per cent rise on 2012.

“We are very fortunate to have hosted some incredibly high calibre speakers over the years with keynotes from industry luminaries including Mark Cerny, Phil Harrison, David Perry, Tim Schafer, David Braben and Peter Molyneux,” exclaimed Andy Lane, managing director of organiser Tandem Events.


“Each year, the content of the conference evolves to ensure it reflects the ever changing face of game development and this year, our ninth, will be no different in that respect including a brand new marketing track. In addition to the great programme, we’re introducing a number of new features, such as a Game Jam and more high level tech talks, to ensure that developers have a fun-filled experience both in and out of the sessions. The aim – as always – is to create an event that’s accessible to all developers, from the smallest indies to the largest studios, and which fulfils their thirst for knowledge and for networking and having fun.”

Develop in Brighton is taking place place on 8th-10th July 2014. Prospective speakers can submit proposals at
