Event Overview:

The AIGA Design Conference is the tentpole live event of the year from the largest and most influential design organization—and the conference that designers will be attending this year.

What to expect? A power design crowd and an exhilarating main stage line-up. Past speakers include design “rock stars” Stefan Sagmeister and David Droga, creative directors from PepsiCo and Nike, and visionary voices from the top design firms Pentagram and Wolf Ollins. We’ll explore the power of design to ignite passions, spark creativity, drive inspiration, and fuel business.

One of the most provocative and inspiring events in the design world. Beyond the conference’s main stage presentations we’ll offer a full range of unique design-centric experiences: studio tours, live competitions, exhibitions, professional development sessions, face-to-face roundtables with design heroes, all topped off by amazing networking parties every evening.

Go high impact with your brand. A visually charged marketing campaign will promote the conference to AIGA’s 25,000 members and 500,000 social media followers. Sponsors will be featured in all aspects of the campaign as we generate excitement leading up to the big event in New Orleans in October.

AIGA’s 2015 conference will bring together a dynamic audience of 2,000 design professionals from all of AIGA’s 69 chapters across the country, with strong attendance from New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Seattle, and other major design markets. This incredibly active group is tech-savvy, early-adopting, highly educated, and inherently curious, with decision-making authority and buying power. Attendees are mostly in the 30-45 age group. Many are major influencers and leading voices in the design world, including graphic designers, web and interactive designers, creative directors, and design managers who represent a range of design studios, agencies, and corporations across a range of industries (retail, luxury goods, finance, technology, healthcare, etc.).

The Design Fair

The cultural and social “hub” of the conference, the Design Fair is the place where designers come to learn about the latest innovations, products, and services that keep them at the top of their game. Book signings by design legends, hands-on demos, portfolio reviews, and the Social Media Lounge create a vibrant and exploratory atmosphere.
