A highlight of Australia’s creative calendar, The Design Conference celebrates its 10th conference with a cracking line-up of 20+ speakers when it returns to Brisbane Powerhouse from Wednesday 16 – Friday 18 June 2021.
Over the last ten years, The Design Conference has evolved into one of the world’s premier professional development opportunities at the forefront of Australia’s creative economy.
Tackling all topics, founder/curator Matthew Haynes insists his speakers address the audience with honesty and authenticity, a formula that’s a hit among speakers and audience alike, earning nothing but five-star reviews.
“With 2020 a washout, there is a lot to share and discuss. I’m particularly interested in uncovering insights to do with Australia’s creative prospects as we move through the next phases of the COVID era. I think Australians have a distinct advantage,” said Haynes.
Catch all the excitement live in person or stream the three-day program as an Immersive Digital Experience in collaboration with Australian Start-up success, Orbits.
“I have never been more excited to rub shoulders with industry heavyweights. I feel a great sense of pride in delivering such a wonderful experience for many aspiring and established creatives. It brings a tear to my eye just thinking about it.”
From critically acclaimed strategists to the world’s best creatives, The Design Conference features 20+ world-class Talks (see complete list below), six industry panels, a massive 60 artist exhibition, concluding with a notorious dancy party at X-Cargo.
