The International Design Excellence Awards recognize products and services that encourage, inspire, and push our industry forward. We honor great design that brings real and lasting benefit to users, clients, and society. 


Formal wear is highly encouraged.

Complimentary Tickets

Event Access offers design students (at four-year colleges or universities) who are underrepresented in industrial design with complementary admission to events produced by IDSA. 

Students must apply (link below) to be considered. 

A limited number of virtual tickets are available for IDC 2023. 




Putting together a high-quality event takes considerable preparation and resources. This is true of both in-person and virtual events. The IDC team (made up of volunteers and full-time paid staff) has been working on this event for nearly a year leading up to now. Any proceeds generated by this event are directly re-invested in current and future IDSA programming, as well as off-setting costs associated with this event. We are endlessly grateful for your support!

Prices will increase as we get closer to the event dates. Don't delay. Secure your ticket at the lowest rate possible by purchasing soon. 

When purchasing your IDC 2023 ticket, you also have the option to add on a small, tax-deductible donation to support Design Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit providing educational opportunities for the advancement of the industrial design profession. Your donation helps the Design Foundation deliver free IDC registration to underrepresented and economically disadvantaged individuals through the Event Access Program


  • Tickets will be sold up to and during the dates of the event.

  • The Virtual Group Watch Party Ticket will entitle your group of any size to access the full IDC 2023, including all the recordings after the live event happens. 

  • Links to access virtual content will be emailed to ticket holders shortly before the event begins. Be sure to check your spam or junk filters if you are not receiving our event updates. They will go to the email address you or your party used to register.
