Develop Conference organizers Tandem Events have announced new information regarding the 2007 edition, which is taking place July 24 to 26 in Brighton, England. The conference, which is the British equivalent to US-based Game Developers Conference, will purportedly include 45 sessions and over 70 speakers. Currently known speakers include Lionhead's Peter Molyneux, movie special effects expert Peter Chiang and LittleBigPlanet
developer Media Molecule, according to Gamasutra.
The sessions are spread over seven tracks
: design, production, coding, business, art, audio, and newcomer world vision. The latter category is intended to provide European developers an international perspective and give them the chance to learn from their global peers.
Running alongside the conference is the Develop Expo
, which will serve as a venue for hands-on demoing of the latest developer tools, technology and very likely a few games.
The first day of Develop is being set aside for Develop Mobile

, focusing on serious and educational games.Registration
is now open. Develop Mobile and GAMES:EDU is will take place Tuesday, July 24, and the Develop Conference and Expo will be July 25 and 26. Currently, there is no schedule of events set and the keynotes have not been announced.
