‘Evolve’ and ‘discoverability’ tracks added; speaker submissions close March 14th

Everyone’s favourite Brighton-based game development conference, Develop:Brighton, will go through significant changes this year. The event, which features our Develop Awards, will expand its full conference from two days to three. Develop:Brighton will now take place between Tuesday 10th and Thursday 12th July.

In previous years the Tuesday of the event was dedicated to ‘Evolve’, a look forward at the future of gaming innovations such as VR and AR. This has now been folded into the conference proper and given its own track, along with a new discoverability track that aims to help developers get their games noticed.

“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,” says Andy Lane, managing director at 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. 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!”

Speaker submissions are now open, so if you have something interesting to say to your game dev peers, then now is the perfect time to get in touch with Tandem and make it happen. Submissions close on March 14th. We look forward to seeing you there in sunny Brighton!
