For over 50 years, the Industrial Designers Society of America has worked to advance the practice of industrial design through education, information, community and advocacy.  Our roots stretch to the beginning of the profession and our members are, and have been, some of the most celebrated industrial designers of all time. Today, we exist as a global voice for industrial design within a broad ecosystem of design disciplines and we 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. 

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 Seattle-inspired cocktail.

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

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

  • Conduct a design competition where participants can win products or services, we'll make the announcements live from the main stage in front of the entire IDC audience.

  • Become the marquis sponsor of the IDC main stage, a high-visibility spot for your product or service.

  • Host a lunch or breakfast event with VIP guests, dedicated stage time, or unique attendee-only handouts.
