Tandem Events has taken the decision to postpone Develop:Brighton 2020 until November due to the ongoing COVID-19 / Coronavirus crisis.
Develop:Brighton will now take place 2-4 November with the Develop:Star Awards taking place on 3 November. Both events will take place at the Brighton Hilton Metropole.
The conference and awards will follow the existing format, with Bethesda Game Studios’ Todd Howard still set to deliver this year’s headline keynote and receive the Develop Star Award in recognition of his accomplishments and contributions to the industry.

Unfortunately, we have taken the decision to postpone the physical Video Game Ambassadors launch event due to take place on Friday 13th March at Ukie’s offices.
In light of the evolving situation in regards to Covid-19, and specifically the public health advice around it, we feel it is right to take a precautionary approach and rearrange the information event for later in the year.
However, we will launch the platform for sign ups with a live stream on Twitch instead.
Tuesday 14 January: Speaker submissions are now open for Develop:Brighton 2020, with organisers Tandem Events inviting game developers to submit their proposals by Wednesday February 19.
