About What is it all about?

Celebrating design in any of its form is the main idea of Design Summit. It brings Designers, Creators, Entrepreneurs and Friends together to build momentum and opportunity around their unique entrepreneurial identity. By celebrating the achievements of the design community in India, it will be less of a conference and more of a festival.

You will find talks featuring artists & modern architects, product designers & entrepreneurs, various parallel unconference sessions, different types of exhibits including a product pitching, creator space and experience zone.

Here are some highlights of the event:

Talks - Design Talks, Creative Conversations, Pecha Kucha.
Unconference - 6 expert led sessions.
Product Pitching - Some of the exciting products will be pitched with a live demo.
Expo - Incubators, product companies, startups and design firms presenting what they have got.
Experience Zone - Experience the latest tech innovations by physically interacting with them.
Maker Space - What if someone starts making some amazing products right in front of you?

Talks Official Schedule for the event

Speakers from the community, and outside, are brought in to share their story. At Design Summit, you will be just as inspired by the person sitting next to you as the person speaking on stage. That is because we attract some of the most amazing leaders, thinkers and doers; including top startup CEOs, best-selling authors, award-winning artists, entrepreneurs, business owners and world-class speakers. The best part is, you will have the opportunity to network with all of them in open settings that enable strong connections and amazing bonds; be it in the ballroom, over lunch or at one of our unconference sessions. It is this support network that can make the difference between closing up shop and pushing through to success.

Unconference Official Schedule for the event

It is a gathering and community of people who share values and a bigger vision of the impact they want to have on the world. The unconference does not fit into a particular track. The speakers are not all entrepreneurs, or designers or artists or celebrities. The beauty of the unconference is that we hand-pick a variety of people from different industries, genres, ages and countries. You are as likely to meet the owner of a $50 million dollar business, as you are to meet a young up-and-coming artist, actress or marketing director of a Fortune 500 company. This variety creates an amazing vibe that keeps the event extraordinary and something that you simply do not experience at networking events.
