Over the last several years, time-to-market pressures, technology tools and knowledge advancement have required all product developers to continually hone their skills to keep up with the rapid pace of change. The Product Development Section strives to share and bring new information and strategies for the industrial designer who is a part of the product development team.

Holiday Gala 2016 & Panel Discussion
Wednesday December 14th, 2016: 7:00 PM – 9:30 PM EST
Mark the end of this year and welcome 2017 by attending the 2016 IDSA NY Holiday Gala! Join us for an evening of food, drink and a panel discussion!
The Panel Discussion: The design Economy
Design is all around us and has been a driver of culture and trade. When we talk of 'design', thoughts and images that pop-up in our minds are mostly aesthetic in nature. However, the fuel that drives the engine of design is commerce. So, how can we approach the discussion of the economic impact of design? We are now stepping into 2017 and IDSA NYC presents a discussion regarding the economics of design from the point of view of panelists from the worlds of retail, design education, economic development, talent recruitment, and design consulting.
Questions we will address: How are businesses that are based on design doing in 2016? How has the nature of projects changed over the last few years and what can they expect going forward? Further, how is design education evolving? How is design impacting the economics of NYC and what can we expect to see in the future? What kind or remuneration can graduates and professionals expect from the world of design today?
