Central District Design Conference 2017

Welcome to IDSA’s Central District Design Conference 2017: Innovation Is a Team Sport. This won't be like any you’ve attended before! Join us from March 31 to April 1 at the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (UC DAAP) to gain insights on how to: source a team to achieve your goals; understand how to communicate in the languages of your team; and keep the project going if faced with barriers.

Learn from top product designers, UX designers, entrepreneurs and athletes who have generated amazing results in product innovations and will share some of their secrets to powering through breakdowns and turning them into breakthroughs. Experiential exercises and workshops will help turn you into a collaborative leader of innovation. Whether you’re part of a 1,000 member team or are self-employed—you will get a curated experience and insights that will support you when going back to work.

Because this is a collaborative experience, we need your unique perspective to ensure that we have a complete team. Join us to co-create this unforgettable experience in Cincinnati—ranked by Huffington Post as a “Top 10 Up & Coming City to See NOW” and by Forbes as one of the “Best Cities for Young People.” Follow the journey using #IDSACDDC @IDSA on Twitter; Industrial Designers Society of America on Facebook and LinkedIn; and @IDSAdesign on Instagram.
