As the #1 Event for Design, CX, and UX professionals, be a part of Design Thinking Portland and get excited for three jam-packed days filled with hands-on learning workshops, site tours, and keynote presentations led by innovative design thinkers from all industries.

What Topics Can You Expect?

This second iteration of our Design Thinking event will follow three core themes to successful design transformation: 
  • Design Doing—This is your hands-on learning & development. You need to apply design thinking within your organization—how do you do this? Sessions around Design Doing are workshop oriented.
  • Design Ops—Building the infrastructure and team is essential to growing a practice. And once established, the infrastructure, design systems, and org design must work cohesively to optimize user experience.
  • Design Leadership—In an environment where Design has a seat at the table—leadership development is critical. This addresses those rising into the position as well as those who are leading from a VP level.
Enjoy three days of executive speakers, interactive workshops, and exclusive site tours this fall in Portland!
