Develop publisher Michael French, told us:
Scotland is home to both some of the world’s biggest and most commercially powerful studios and some of its most innovative, forward-thinking developers. It’s about time they had a global games development event on their doorstep.
Develop Live will take place two days before Game Expo Scotland, the new consumer event organised by Magdala Media that will be held in the Scottish capital across the weekend of October 4th and 5th. Game Expo Scotland is a media partner of Develop Live; Develop and its sister title MCV are media partners of Game Expo Scotland.
Rowan Mackie, Magdala Media said:
Hosting Develop Live in Edinburgh adds to all the gaming festivities leading up to GES 2014. We are very happy to be partnered with MCV / Develop and look forward to working together to help create 2 key Scottish event dates in this year’s diary.
Editor James Batchelor added:
Develop Live will be a place to share ideas and insight, whether that’s about immediate matters like game funding and tax breaks or deeper issues around content and creativity – just like the Develop website and magazine is. We’re looking forward to sharing details of the first confirmed speakers very soon and unveiling our keynote sessions.
