Design Thinking Virtual Experience is Now OPEN!

To give you the best event experience, we will be taking a virtual field trip! You will be redirected to a new site in order to access your profile, build your agenda, chat 1:1 with fellow design thinkers, roam the virtual expo hall, and most importantly, have access to keynotes and workshops all on one platform.

#DesignThinkingVX

After careful consideration, Design Thinking 2020 is going 100% Virtual. The health, safety and well-being of our attendees, partners and employees is paramount, and this is the only action that is within our power in order to make sure you remain healthy and safe during these uncertain times. The great news: Design Thinking Virtual Experience (VX) is fully translated into a virtual environment where you can take full advantage of the event’s offerings that our Design Thinkers are used to seeing onsite.
