2017 South Conference

As the saying goes, “A rising tide lifts all boats.” Though originally attributed to economic well-being, the phrase can be applied to many things—including design. Our profession is fundamentally collaborative and we frequently work in teams—where pooling our knowledge yields the best results. The end goal, of course, is to mold ideas into tangible products and services that enable better lives and ignite imaginations. But in order to accomplish great things, we must continuously refine our craft. 

The IDSA South District Design Conference 2017 from April 7–8, 2017 at the University of Houston is your opportunity to do just that. It’s a celebration of creativity and ingenuity; a gathering of community; and a convergence of ideas. It’s a moment of introspection and reflection.

Elevate will inspire with provocations from leading design minds representing a wide spectrum of creative disciplines. Elevate will empower you with skill building workshops aimed at honing your ability to deliver exceptional thinking. Elevate will surround you with the networking and resources needed to advance your career.

Join us in beautiful Houston, TX for what surely will be a conference experience to remember. By bettering ourselves, we can better the world around us. You are the catalyst for bigger thinking. You can lift us all.
