IDC is a conference for (industrial) designers

The industrial design profession is constantly shifting and evolving to keep pace with rapid advancements in technology, cultural trends, and socio-economic forces. Once siloed disciplines, methodologies, and skillsets now overlap and blur into what is often called, simply, Design. IDC is a space to celebrate these deep interconnections while simultaneously amplifying the unique and bold voice of industrial designers.

​Through the sharing of ideas, you'll come away with a fresh perspective and actionable insights ready to be implemented into your own work. IDC is a platform to drive your career forward. Whether you are just starting out or well on your way, this is an opportunity to learn something new or give something back.

You are encouraged to join the dialogue and advance the conversation about what design can contribute to the world's future.

Bring your friends, join us in-person or online

We are beyond excited to return to an in-person format, which will mean so much more after having spent so much time apart. Your well-being is our top priority. A range of COVID-19 safety measures will be in place to protect your health and peace of mind so you can focus on getting the most out of your time at IDC 2022.

 

The schedule, as a comprehensive event, will include: IDC, IDSA Education Symposium, Sponsor/Exhibitor Gallery, IDEA Ceremony & Gala, IDSA Awards Ceremony, IDSA Business Meeting, and Seattle-area excursions across those three days.

If you can't make the trip to Seattle, don't worry! We'll have an option available for you to attend the event virtually and be present for all the mainstage presentations during IDC 2022.
