Tandem Events has announced Develop:Brighton Digital, an online-only event taking place 2-4 November 2020. The event replaces the physical event, which was postponed earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year’s Develop:Star Awards will be also be held digitally, and will take place on Wednesday 4 November.
Due to ongoing safety concerns, the decision has been taken to create a virtual alternative to the annual video game developer conference, ahead of a return to the south coast next year from 13-15 July 2021.
Passes purchased for Develop:Brighton 2020 will be automatically rolled over to next year’s event.
Develop:Brighton Digital will feature quality pre-recorded sessions from an array of industry speakers. Further details will be shared in September.
“Safety is paramount but due to the scale of Develop:Brighton it would be impossible to safely hold a physical event that would incorporate the conference, the expo, the Develop:Star Awards, and the numerous networking and social events which take place during the week,” said Tandem Events managing director Andy Lane.
“So while it feels wrong to not be returning to Brighton this year, we’re no less excited about what’s to come. Develop:Brighton Digital will be every bit as informative and entertaining as our attendees have come to expect from the event.”
