The Core77 Conference is coming back to Los Angeles this September 29–30 for two days of design immersion and exploration. You’ll be influenced and inspired by leading contemporary designers from Microsoft, IDEO, Hyperloop, Autodesk (and many more) who will take the stage at the historic Vibiana to share their personal stories, design input, and predictions on the landscape of modern design.

From start up strategies, to human-centered design, to innovation through interdisciplinary teams, the first day of the Conference will feature speakers covering the gamut of forward thinking design trends in an effort to engage, educate, and challenge.

The first day of panels and presentations will only whet your design appetite, however, as the second day kicks off with a series of professionally led workshops engineered to hone the game changing ideas introduced on day one into strategies for effective new ways of working. Following the workshops, exclusive guided tours will chauffeur you around a few of Los Angeles’ most intriguing design studios and public projects. Catered meals will address your more literal appetite throughout both days, while parties and receptions cap off each night - offering plenty of chances to mingle and network with fellow designers and design enthusiasts.

Whether you’re a new student, recent grad, or established alum, the 2016 Core77 Conference, Designing Here/Now, is the perfect opportunity to expand your design mind and form lasting relationships. In addition to specially priced Student tickets, Core77 has offered an exclusive $100 discount to non-student members of the Art Center community.
