#DesignThinking2020 dates have changed!
September 8-11 at the Hilton Austin, TX

After careful consideration, we are postponing Design Thinking Austin 2020. 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. Rescheduling this event will allow us to deliver the Design Thinking experience that you are accustomed to, in a safe environment.

See What You Missed!

Have FOMO? Our 2019 Design Thinkers kept it weird in Austin, attending Design Thinking University, listening to rock star keynote sessions from USAA, PepsiCo, Dick's Sporting Goods, and even had a rock, paper, scissor contest with GE Healthcare's Design Thinking Lead-Global Design. Get ready for #DesignThinking2020 because it's going to be bigger than ever.
