Design Indaba Conference 2019: Tickets on sale now

From dates to discounts to speakers, here’s what you need to know about the world’s best creative conference.

We’re happy to announce that ticket sales for the 24th iteration of the Design Indaba Conference are now open!

Each year, the idea of a simple talkshop comes undone on the Conference stage. The Design Indaba Conference 2019 will take place from Wednesday 27 February to Friday 01 March 2019 and will be held in the Opera House of the Artscape Theatre Centre in Cape Town.

The Design Indaba Cape Town Simulcast will be screened as a live feed from the main conference and will take place in the Theatre Venue at the same location.

The 2019 event promises a stellar selection of international speakers whose compelling presentations combine career-changing insights and the most cutting-edge work on the global circuit.

At the same time, we work to see the ideas that take shape on stage find physical form in the public realm – from the Arch for Arch project that honoured Archbishop Desmond Tutu to the renaming of a floor in the iconic Zeitz MOCAA to honour the late Hugh Masekela.

As the annual conference is a sell-out event, do please take advantage of our early booking window and special offers to ensure your place among the globe’s best…

GIVING BACK:

Since 1995, the Design Indaba has contributed vastly to uplifting the South African design sector through education and projects - and will continue to do so. For the first time in 2019, we’d like to invites delegates to make their own contribution to growing the design industry by way of a voluntary donation towards the not-for-profit Design Indaba Trust, which supports the attendance of students in need. This voluntary donation is entirely at your discretion and is an optional prompt that forms part of your online booking and payment – so there’s nothing extra you’ll need to do!

To find out more about the Design Indaba Trust and not-for-profit projects, see: The Design Indaba Do Tank.

And if you’re already doing something amazing within our community, we’d love to hear about it and share it across our platform! Please contact the Design Indaba editorial team at editorial[at]designindaba.com with your news.
