Over a very busy three days (Tues 12th – Thurs 14th July), we’re going to be once again throwing the go-to party of the event, giving attendees the opportunity to meet the Hangar 13 team at our stand, supporting three charities that work to promote and raise awareness around diversity and inclusion in the games industry, and offering the crowds tons of treats from the Hangar 13 ice cream van!
The only place to be on Tuesday evening: our famous Party on the Pier at Horatio’s. Whether you’re a colleague, friend or industry collaborator, a warm welcome awaits you at what’s become known as the perfect way to get Develop:Brighton off to a sparkling, fun-filled start. This year, we’ve also partnered with charity SpecialEffect on a party photo booth, so guests can commemorate a great night while supporting this wonderful organisation’s work to make games more accessible for those with disabilities.
For the following three days, we’ll be welcoming friends old and new at our stand, and we want to give you the opportunity to get to know Hangar 13 better. To that end, we’re bringing dozens of the team along, from designers to producers to writers, to answer any and all questions about their jobs, Hangar 13 and the industry as a whole. Also present will be the recruitment team; we have many opportunities available right now across the organisation, so it’s possible a visit to our Develop:Brighton stand this year could be the start of something much bigger …
At Hangar 13, we’re also extremely proud of the work we and our partners do to make the gaming industry more diverse and inclusive, and we’re joining forces with three of them this year at Develop:Brighton. The photo booth at the Party on the Pier will raise money for SpecialEffect; we’re sharing space at our stand with another charity, Into Games, who work to make the gaming industry more accessible to young talent from diverse economic backgrounds; and finally, we’re supporting our friends at Women in Games by holding a cake-and-fizz networking event in the restaurant to raise awareness of the charity’s mission to make gaming a more welcoming place for women.
See you in Brighton!
