The Industrial Designers Society of America promotes the practice of industrial design through education, information, community and advocacy. Our roots extend to the very beginning of the industrial design profession; however, we’ve grown to embrace the boundless potential of the greater design industry. We are a voice for industrial design within this ecosystem and celebrate the cross-functional overlap of many creative fields.

It's time to think 'outside the booth'.

We are seeking partner organizations who will provide interesting and provocative ways to engage with our audience of hundreds of diverse designers from around the world. You will be encouraged to interact with participants not only to elevate your brand, but also to positively impact the overall conference experience.

Your presence at the IDC will solidify your stance as a pioneer in your field and will position your brand among some of the most influential minds in the creative industry. How you use this ground-breaking opportunity is entirely up to you … but not to worry, we are here to help craft the best outcome for everyone involved. 

The IDC will take place over the course of two days in Chicago, IL, August 21-23, just a few blocks away from the world famous Cloud Gate sculpture … aka ‘The Bean’ ... at the modern and sophisticated Venue SIX10.

Here are just a few examples of how to get involved: 

  • Product showcases and experiential demos in a branded lounge environment.

  • Help IDC guests unwind with games, a massage, fun snacks, or sipping Chicago style cocktails on our rooftop patio with sweeping views of Lake Michigan.

  • Host a VIP networking session in an intimate space where conference speakers and guests mingle and connect.

  • Find placement in the Design Gallery, a high visibility area built to engage and bring awareness to your brand.
