June 21-23: AIA Conference on Architecture
New York City, New York 

As Philip Johnson once said, “architecture is basically the design of interiors, the art of organizing interior space.” The AIA Conference on Architecture, held in the iconic New York City for the first time in 30 years, brings together architects from across the nation to “push the envelope and explore unconventional solutions to create real change in cities, communities, firms, and the profession.” 

From small-group workshops and NYC architecture tours to networking and keynotes by Sir David Adjaye and Sheela Søgaard, this is a can’t miss event for architects.

September 7: IIDA Leaders Breakfast
San Francisco, California

Held annually, this year in eight different cities from May to October, the IIDA Leaders Breakfast series celebrates the “legacy and future of design” in the global marketplace. The San Francisco breakfast will feature an inspiring keynote speaker and will honor one city-selected appointee.

September 19-22: IDSA International Design Conference 2018

Organized by the Industrial Designers Society of America, this year’s International Design Conference will celebrate the “diversity, overlap, and undeniable power of design.” Beginning with a design excellence ceremony and gala and closing with an education symposium, the third-annual event invites designers from all backgrounds to explore common themes facing the industry.
