Join us in Vancouver, B.C, this September 12 and 13, 2019, as we host one of North America’s most uplifting, inspiring and expansive educational conferences showcasing the true value of design.

IDC brings together thought leaders, subject experts, and game changers from the wider design, business, and media community to explore design thinking through human connections, and the crucial role of design in shaping a productive, healthy and inclusive society.

The two-day symposium aims to expand horizons, networks, and skills through a program of in-depth education, expert panel discussions, guided design tours, award presentations, emerging leaders programs, and provocative conference keynotes.

This year, join us as we dive deeper into design thinking and explore the human connections to rapidly-changing technology, environment and nature, and sustainability and wellness.
