Bloomberg Businessweek magazine announced Bloomberg Businessweek Design 2013, its first annual design conference, to be held on Monday, January 14, 2013 at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, CA.
World-renowned designers and creative executives across a variety of disciplines, such as architecture, graphic design, robotics, city planning, 3D printing, data visualization, genomics, corporate branding, and more, will break out of their silos to discuss the state of the industry, their creative process, and ways in which design can make the world better, smarter, cooler, and more innovative.
Bloomberg Businessweek Design 2013 is the first conference launched by the magazine since its acquisition by Bloomberg LP in 2009. An exclusive audience of 250 attendees will be on hand for the one-day conference’s four sessions, networking periods, and closing cocktail party. Attendance is by invitation only.
“Good design is often the defining element of the products, businesses, environments and sciences that become legendary,” said Josh Tyrangiel, editor of Bloomberg Businessweek. “These designers are setting the bar for innovation in their respective fields, and at this event they can venture out of their professional enclaves, come together, perhaps even collide, in unexpected and provocative groupings, to discuss process, passions, influences, successes, and failures.”
“At Bloomberg Businessweek our mission is to surprise, delight, and inform our entrepreneurial readers every week by giving them access to the insight of our editors and writers and the wisdom of the sharpest business minds around the globe,” said Paul Bascobert, President of Bloomberg Businessweek. “We fulfill that promise with this conference, at which C-suite attendees will learn where design is leading businesses and communities next, and enjoy one- on-one interactions with the Businessweek team and the stellar roster of presenters.”
