Why Attend the DesignOps Summit?

The DesignOps Summit is the first conference dedicated to helping design leaders and managers create design capacity that scales with change. 

What’s special about the DesignOps Summit?

You’ve recruited great design talent–but sadly, that’s not enough. Without well-crafted Design Operations in place, those expensive designers and researchers won’t scale to keep up with the demand. The DesignOps Summit is for you if your organization needs to:

You’ll mingle with and learn from industry pioneers who’ve already built fast-growing design operations at companies like Capital One, GE, Pinterest, WeWork, Atlassian, Autodesk and beyond. You’ll spend three days learning and networking in an intimate setting with over 300 forward-thinking design leaders like you. You’ll head home with new approaches, tools, and connections to build effective systems, onboarding programs, and workflows for your team.

What will you take away?

Our great content comes in a variety of formats: keynotes, talks, and four workshops. Don’t worry about taking notes, just enjoy the sessions—we’ll make sure you and your team have access to sketchnotes, tripnotes, and video recordings of the main conference program within about a week after the conference wraps up.

We’ll provide you with plenty of other opportunities to learn, network, and have fun—it’s impossible not to in New York City!

Who should attend?

The DesignOps Summit is for design leaders, managers, and practitioners who understand that design organizations can’t scale up design without the support of well-conceived operations.
