The International Design Conference is a thought leadership platform celebrating the intersection of business and design, while thriving at the edge of disciplines to remain provocative and to use design and creativity to ask difficult questions and to take the audience to new territories.

Design Futures:

Better Normal with Design

The International Design Conference 2020 brings to light the whys and hows of building innovations, sustaining changes, and defining what these mean for individuals, communities, organizations, the government, and policies in these changing times. Global and local thought leaders will share their take on a post-crisis future and daringly take the first step into imagining a new age of design.

The time is now to activate the Philippines’ design resources to a whole new level. We need design and designers to show us the way forward; to create more consciously into the future, not simply towards a new normal, but to usher in a new milestone of innovation, a better normal by design.
