Leading European trade event celebrates fifth birthday

Former EALA VP of creative development Louis Castle is to deliver the opening keynote at the Evolve day of the Develop Conference.

Castle, who worked with Steven Spielberg on the Boom Blox! franchise and headed up EA’s disruptive Blueprint division, recently left the publisher to head up browser gaming startup InstantAction.

The day takes place on Tuesday July 13th – the first day of the Develop Conference – and covers the emerging markets for developers such as digital distribution, social gaming and iPhone development.

In addition to Castle, the day’s closing keynote will be delivered by Unity founder David Helgason.

“The Evolve Conference kick starts Develop in Brighton and was fantastically well received last year, attracting influential delegates from across the industry,” said Andy Lane, managing director of organiser Tandem Events.

“It’s designed to tackle the exciting opportunities that exist within the social, casual and online sectors so we’re delighted that Louis and David are keynoting.”
