CONFERENCE INFO BELOW:
Independently curated with a focus on case studies and ingenious problem solving, rather than simply eye-catching portfolios, conference alumni are contemporary industry pacesetters. Despite its name, the Conference’s scope has broadened over the years to include all the creative sectors; in recent years it has been dubbed by some as The Conference on Creativity.
In 2005, Design Indaba Conference was awarded the EIBTM award for Best Conference in the World, and won Best Live Event at the Loerie Awards 2007.
In order to increase accessibility to Design Indaba Conference, the Design Indaba Simulcast caters to emerging designers, students and young professionals.
This intervention is in keeping with the Design Indaba philosophy of accessibility, as we strongly believe that the more people exposed to innovative, creative, out-of-the-box thinking, the more significant the impact of creativity and design to the economy. Design Indaba’s Simulcast is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to experience the magic of the main Design Indaba Conference through a live broadcast to a second auditorium in Cape Town and additional venues in other cities.
The Design Indaba Expo is the only local platform that welcomed advertising, architecture, craft, décor, film, fashion, graphic design, interior design, jewellery, new media, publishing, product design, and visual media under the same roof. Design Indaba Expo is a celebration of diversity.
