Save the Date | Seattle 2015

When designers, educators, students, and business leaders come together to exchange information and ideas, exciting things happen. Mark your calendars now and plan to join us in Seattle, Aug. 19-22, 2015 for our 50th Anniversary conference, chaired by Surya Vanka, IDSA, Director of User Experience at Microsoft Corp.  

The theme is The Future of the Future: The Next 50 Years. The conference will celebrate the achievements of the design community over the last half century and accelerate reinvention of the profession to ensure its relevance in the 21st century.

The conference is the capstone event of IDSA's year-long 50th Anniversary celebration. IDSA Chair Austen Angell said, ”This is possibly the most important conference in our history. The 50th is about the next 50 years, not just the last 50 years. Surya Vanka has the right vision, maturity of thought and perspective on the industry to lead this conference.”

"For half a century, IDSA has advanced the design profession. I'm grateful for the opportunity to facilitate the conversations that will lead our profession into the next half century,"  said Vanka.
