The Design Conference Brisbane, May 24–27th

8 months ago by

The Design Conference 2017 (#tdcbne17) is the biggest and most anticipated event we have planned in our six year history. On top securing the best line-up of speakers we have ever featured, we’ve made it our mission to not only nail the event talks but to also deliver a range of world-class breakouts, workshops and side events — transforming the conference into an experience which is worth the hype.

For those looking to cruise to the main land, the soon to be launched app will make Brisbane feel like a home away from home. Traversing between the Brisbane Powerhouse and our off-site events (parties and workshops) is as easy as 1-2-3. For those who need the proof in the pudding check out the rave reviews on twitter under #tdcbne16.

If you’re not familiar with the speakers at this year’s event, we curate a gender balanced group of international and Australian business leaders from the arts and design worlds. From Creative Director, Mike Rigby from RG/A in NYC to Commercial Artist Camille Walala from the UK, we plan to delve into the most important factors which allowed each speaker to build thriving careers while balancing it with a life worth living and the ability to give back through events just like ours.

If you would like to experience #tdcbne, and you’re quick — we’re teaming up with Design Assembly to offer 10 followers 25% off event passes, saving you up to A$75 and offering this up till the end of April. Use the code DAANDTDC when purchasing your ticket. Limited to ten people only! We could say Happy Easter but what we really want to say is, come and let us blow your mind. The Design Conference is not your typical event, it’s an opportunity to experience cultural shift in the way you do business and how you live your life.”
