Looks awesome! Great list of speakers too. One day I’ll make it over :smiley:

Next year will be in Toronto, but the IDSA IDC will be in Seattle… do they have any equivalent conferences in Australia?

We have similar conferences that are usually run by the Design Institute of Australia (IDSA equivalent), though I don’t think they are quite on the same scale as US based conferences as the volume of designers is lower. It would be great to get to one that has firms like IDEO/Frog etc. presenting.
