The jam-packed schedule boasts more than 80 educational sessions, 100 speakers, 13 keynote speakers, nearly 100 vendors and brand new Workshops and Master Classes designed to create an inspirational and hands-on learning environment.
Malcolm Gladwell, DeeDee Gordon, Jeffrey Zeldman, Natasha Jen, Mauro Porcini, Seymour Chwast, Kelli Anderson, Brian Collins, Timothy Goodman, and Pum Lefebure, are among the luminaries headlining the event. Attendees will also hear from and engage with leadership at global brands such as Starbucks, SC Johnson, Coca-Cola, GE, CVS Health and The Hershey Company.
"Here at HOW Design Live we spend quite a bit of time thinking about what role we play in the design profession and how we can make a difference in the careers and lives of our attendees by creating a remarkable conference experience" said Gary Lynch, Vice President and Group Show Director, HOW Events. "Over the past several months we've been listening, learning and planning to make sure HOW Design Live 2017 not only far exceeds expectations, but is the best conference we've ever created. We are confident that no one will be disappointed."
