UK game development conference Develop:Brighton returns this July and is now open for speaker submissions.
This year’s event – the conference’s 12th year – sees a reduced number of tracks that focus on Art, Audio, Business, Coding, Design and Indie, plus a one day track dedicated to the future of games development called, Evolve.
Potential speakers have until 20th March, 2017 to submit their session topics via the Developer:Brighton website. Speakers must also include a two-minute video detailing the content of their proposed session, plus an explanation of why people should attend and what they will learn. In addition, submissions must also include a 140-character, Tweet-like description that will grab the attention of attendees. If you can’t provide these, a note from your parents must be attached.
Andy Lane, managing director of conference organisers Tandem Events, said:
“Develop:Brighton 2016 was hugely popular and successful but we want to make 2017 even better. We’re constantly striving to make sure that the whole experience improves each year for all attendees and speakers. This year we’re concentrating the number of tracks down to just six, so it’s easier for developers to focus on the topics that really matter to them. By doing it this way, it’ll be clearer for delegates to discover the content that’s most relevant to them.”
Develop:Brighton will be held at the Hilton Metropole in Brighton from 11 – 13 July, 2017.
You can find out more and submit session ideas at the Develop:Brighton website.
