Instead, we’ve decided to spread our event across a much longer period and turn it into the first Leading Design Festival. So we’re going to have practical masterclasses, talks, panel discussions, and a host of other sessions peppered throughout the month. This will hopefully allow our busy community of design leaders to pick and choose what to attend (much like a real festival), and catch content they’ve missed on replay.

This sort of asynchronous time and place shifted content is fast becoming the norm. However, there’s still something magical about bringing a group of peers together for a shared experience. So we’ll be kicking things off with a mini-conference. Spread over three afternoons (or mornings if you’re in the US), it’ll be a combination of over a dozen short talks, Q&As, and panel discussions, with plenty of breaks to make sure folks can fit things around their schedule, and not get fatigued.

Want to keep the insights coming? Then why not join us for The Rest of the Fest, an extended series of talks, panel discussions, mentoring sessions and networking events throughout the month of March. Perfect for the busy design exec working to take their leadership to the next level.

If that's not enough, we've also arranged a series of 90-minute Masterclasses with some of the most influential design leaders in our field. These practical, hands-on sessions will help you grow your leadership toolkit, and be the best leader you can possibly be.

To make things even easier you can choose to attend just the conference, pick specific masterclasses, or buy a pass that gives you unlimited access to the whole festival. The choice is yours.

The tickets have just launched and early-bird tickets won't hang around long. I really hope you can join us in March 2021.
