Updated: Jul 3, 2019

Inform, Inspire & Share with Creative Assembly

Tue, 9 July 2019, 3-5.30pm @ Lighthouse

Join us at 3pm until 5:30pm on 9th July 2019 for ‘smart’ networking, refreshments that showcase some of the best of Brighton’s food and drink from woman-founded brands, inspirational speakers and Q&A, and one-to-one portfolio reviews with the UK’s leading game developer. Book via Eventbrite:​

Games Aid Poker Tournament

The game is Texas Hold ‘Em No Limit with a £50 donation/buy-in. Re-buys and add-ons will be available on the night. There won’t be cash prizes available, however, a number of other exciting prizes will be announced. As always, all levels of players are welcome! £50 donation to play:

Game Dev Heroes

Shortlist is up so if you're on it you will definitely get a ticket, otherwise it was pretty packed last year, keep an eye on the website:

Develop: Star Awards Party

Wed, 10 July 2019, 7-late pm @ Hilton

We think awards presentations should seek to inspire an industry and to bring communities together to network, celebrate achievements and share ideas. They should also be about having fun - so not drag on too long! Summer Party

Wed, 10 July 2019, 8-late pm @ Patterns, 10 Marine Parade

Featuring a Free Bar and Buckets of Beer spread liberally around the venue, the Summer Party also includes the legendary (and much sought after) midnight bacon sandwiches to keep everyone fuelled (vegan option available). £35 for tickets here:
