Why Attend

and what should you expect...

At our big event in Nov 2019 in Bangalore, we are likely to see over 1400 attendees and expect over 400 more in the ‘satellite’ events. But numbers or scale is not our key success criteria (although one number we are proud of is zero – zero disposable plastic bottles, cutlery at the 2018 Conference). Beyond a point, larger events become impersonal and faceless. We are cognizant of that and therefore some soul searching, some changes and new formats we’re planning to try out.

Over the years the number of reasons to attend DesignUp Conference has grown significantly – as have the number of attendees, repeat visitors, organisations represented and countries they come from. In 2018, attendees came from over 250 organisations (Consulting, Product, MNCs, Startups, Schools – from Adobe to Zomato) from 14 countries – more than doubling from 2017. With The DesignUpFest – the reasons to attend will also go up.
