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 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 virtual event. We are endlessly grateful for your support!

When purchasing your IDC 2021 ticket, you also have the option to add on a small, tax-deductible donation to support the Design Foundationa 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.
