Update: June 25, 2020
Since our very first event update on March 13, we have been working to determine the best course of action for Design Thinking 2020. After much deliberation we have come to the decision, with the health and safety of our attendees as the #1 priority, to move Design Thinking to a fully virtual event format this year. While we are saddened that we will not be coming together in person in Austin, we look forward to providing the Design & Innovation community with the opportunity to meet, learn, and network virtually.
Design Thinking Virtual Experience (VX), will provide the same insights, innovation and learning as the live event. The event will feature the same expert speakers, cover the same innovative content, and provide networking to build new business relationships.

Design Thinking 2021 will be returning to Austin next year. We can’t wait to be back together in person, and until then, we will meet virtually.
Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have at this time. We hope you and your loved ones continue to stay safe at this time.

Design Thinking 2020 is going ahead as scheduled.
In light of the recent developments surrounding COVID-19, I wanted to provide you with some information leading up to Design Thinking Austin, taking place next month.
Firstly, I want to stress that the show will go on! We are continuously monitoring what the CDC, WHO, and US Government have recommended and follow their advice. I want to assure you that our attendees’ health and well-being are our #1 priority and we do not take the current situation lightly. Therefore there are several precautions and measures that we are and will undertake in these last weeks leading up to the event and on site in Austin.
Before I dive into those, a few facts to note:
All of this is excellent news and speaks to the strength of the Design Thinking Austin program, but despite this optimism, we know that we must be vigilant to ensure that our venue and attendees follow basic good-health protocols including no hand-shaking, washing hands regularly, and stressing that if anyone feels unwell, to please not attend, and if they are already in Austin for the event when this occurs, to see a healthcare professional immediately.
Additionally, please note the following precautionary and preventative measures are being taken to ensure the event environment is as healthy and safe as possible:
We are looking forward to seeing you in Austin next month. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly.
