The Bend Design Conference is a series of conversations, workshops, and exhibits by and for creative innovators everywhere. This is not a conference just for designers—it’s also for entrepreneurs, educators, civic leaders, students, trade professionals and all of us curious about how design can interpret, connect and shape our world. In addition to inspiring and informative keynote speakers, Bend Design Conference hosts workshops, panels and hosted dinner conversations.

In its third year, Bend Design Conference is continuing to evolve beyond the lecture format toward more of a dialogue to inspire and equip future creative leaders. There are no tracks dividing the disciplines, because we believe that creative disruption requires diverse inputs and ideas. Attendees can expect to further the ideas they came with, make connections with new mentors and co-conspirators, and emerge ready to design the future. Keynote speakers include John Cary, Lynda Decker, Bryan Lee, Angela Luna, Kawandeep Virdee and Tanner Woodford – hailing from New Orleans, NYC, SF, Chicago.
