Conference events

Frequently asked questions

Are ticket prices going up?

For the second year in a row, Design Indaba has decided not to increase our ticket prices.

When are tickets going on sale?

Early bird sales will be on sale from 15 November 2016 until 15 December 2016.

Can I get points if I’m an architect or an interior designer?

Currently not. We pride ourselves on bringing the best of international speakers to the Design Indaba stage every year. This means we can’t guarantee the required number of speakers from either industry, and therefore aren’t accredited with these bodies.

When will the conference program be released?

Speakers will be announced from December 1st, but the final program will only be released one week before the event.

When will the first speakers name be released?

Speakers will be announced from December 1st.

Where is it taking place?

The Design Indaba Conference and Festival will be held at The Artscape Theatre Centre in Cape Town. Certain events (like the Emerging Creatives exhibition and the Most Beautiful Object in South Africa competition) will be held at offsite venues.

Will there be an Expo?

The last Design Indaba Expo was held in 2015. Designers interested in showcasing their work through Design Indaba can sign up to our Designer Directory or enter for the next Emerging Creatives programme.
