The annual DesignUp Conference has been called "the definitive Design-in-Tech event", "the Gold Standard of Design Conferences in India" and listed amongst the world's ‘most exciting Design events for 2018’ by Quartz. And the only way to continue being a great destination for the community is by hosting insightful speakers, diverse voices, engaging year-round conversations and inspiring content.
Here’s a short video recap of the 2017 Conference and the ‘10-Things-You-Didn’t-Know’ published by YourStory in 2016. And you can relieve the 2017 Conference in Tweets via this LinkedIn article.
DesignUp is volunteer-driven and community-led. There are no full time salaried employees—we all have our day jobs. For us, DesignUp is a passion and unifying force. Over 2 editions, we grew DesignUp from 230 attendees to 580 for the main conference. And a combined 800+ attendees across multiple event formats in 2017, making it possibly India’s largest gathering of Designers in technology. But being the biggest is never the aim.
Underlying the conference and the community is our raison-d'etre: DesignUp is focused on Design-in-tech and Design-for-tech . We seek to curate stories, share practices and processes that make Tech and Businesses more human and humane, that impact human lives, and the broader ecosystems—for good, for better.
DesignUp is committed to raising the Design discourse, and contributing to the craft and practice of Design discipline in it’s new, ever-changing but high-impact tech arena.
