Speakers and Programming

    The annual AIGA Design Conference is a curated experience, led by our conference chair, program committee, and key staff members. We welcome recommendations for speakers, especially individuals from underrepresented groups, as we strive for a superlative lineup of diverse backgrounds, identities, and perspectives. We are only able to accommodate a limited number of proposals that best meet our programming needs. To submit a speaker for consideration, you must complete a speaker proposal form.

      Virtual events take place using our event platform and via Zoom. One week prior to the conference, registrants will receive a login, which will allow them access to Zoom links for Fireside Chats, general sessions, workshops, and all other sessions.

      Registration

        We offer a discounted rate to active members who have identified in their my.aiga.org profiles as educators. If you are a current member and your "job type" is listed as educator, the discount will automatically apply to the member registration ticket.

          We offer a discounted rate to active members who have identified in their my.aiga.org profiles as students. If you are a current member and your "job type" is listed as students, the discount will automatically apply to the member registration ticket.

            Groups of 4 or more registering together will receive $100 off of each registration. Group discounts do not apply to registrations at our already discounted rates (student, educator, nonprofit, or government). Cancellations of one or more registrations are subject to AIGA’s cancellation policy. Group discounts are available only to groups of four or more. If a cancellation brings the total group size to fewer than four attendees, remaining registrants will be charged at the full registration rate.

              Thanks to the support of our generous members and donors, we are pleased to offer a limited number of complimentary tickets to the Festival for those who are in need of financial assistance due to the unprecedented events of 2020 and 2021. Learn more and apply here.

                If you prefer to register by mail, a PDF form is available by request: please email AIGA_registrar@aiga.org; a $25 per-person processing fee applies.

                  Conference rates are based on membership status at the time of registration. Memberships are non-transferable.
