World Industrial Design Day 2018
Jun 29 all-day

For World Industrial Design Day (WIDD) on 29 June 2018, the World Design Organization (WDO) invites the global design community to participate in this year’s theme: ‘Design’s impact on good health and well-being’.
 
This deceptively simple theme speaks to a complex set of factors and conditions that determine the level of quality of life of every human being. In addition to individual characteristics, behaviour and genetic makeup, research has shown that health is influenced by certain socio-economic factors, such as physical recreation, access to nutritious food, living and working conditions, as well as by environmental factors, such as air quality and noise and the design of communities and transportation systems. As a result, the achievement of the SDG for good health is strongly interlinked with other areas related to sustainable development.
 
Through a series of activities such as panel discussions, workshops, exhibits, networking events and in alignment with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #3: Good Health and Well-being, WIDD 2018 will explore the many ways design can help improve our physical, social, mental and emotional development

USA: Vectorworks Design Summit 2018 @ Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass
Nov 4 – Nov 6 all-day

For the fourth year in a row, global design and BIM software developer Vectorworks, Inc. invites design professionals, educators and students in the architecture, landscape and entertainment industries to the annual Vectorworks Design Summit. The Summit will take place from November 4 to November 6, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona at the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass, and this ultimate training experience will consist of industry workshops, inspirational design and networking.

“The architecture and landscape in Arizona are very different from the city backdrops we have had in the last three years, and I think our customers will enjoy getting away from the hustle and bustle of their daily lives to enjoy this scenic desert location,” said Nicole Davison, vice president of sales at Vectorworks, who is originally from Tucson. “The weather in November will be beautiful and allow us to network outside and enjoy the mountains, sun and native Arizona landscape.”

Located in the Sonoran Desert, the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass celebrates the Gila River Indian heritage and culture, offering a quiet serenity combined with a high-tech hotel experience. Attendees are encouraged to extend their stay and enjoy everything the resort has to offer, including an 18-hole golf course, horseback riding, a world-class spa and much more.

Become a Speaker/Trainer

The call for speakers and trainers at the Vectorworks Design Summit is currently open. Presentations should be one or two hours and cover best practices, efficiency gains, tips, tricks or techniques that streamline workflows and empower designers to create innovative design solutions.

In addition to completing a short application, candidates who have not spoken at a past Design Summit must include a short video demonstrating their presentation skills. Proposals are due February 21, 2018, and those chosen will be notified March 9, 2018.

Become an Exhibitor/Sponsor

Businesses can promote their products and services to hundreds of creative visionaries across the architecture, landscape and entertainment industries by becoming an exhibitor/sponsor at the Summit. There is no fee to exhibit in the Expo Hall, and businesses can apply and also ask about sponsorship pricing here.
