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

Just because a conference goes virtual doesn't mean you have to forget about showing off your latest and greatest products and services. There are plenty of interesting and unique opportunities to gain visibility for your brand. 


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.

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.
