Returning to downtown Los Angeles, the 3rd annual Core77 Conference brings together design practitioners, thought leaders, business strategists, technologists, and entrepreneurs for an immersive, two-day exploration on how designers can lead interdisciplinary teams to create game-changing products and experiences that positively impact society as a whole.
The first day of the conference features panels and presentations led by design, arts, science, engineering, and business luminaries, and will focus on human-centered design, start up strategies, and leading successful projects from concept to launch.
The second day kicks off with a series of workshops hosted by outstanding professionals from the Core77 network, offering attendees the chance to hone ideas introduced on the first day into strategies for effective new ways of working. Following the workshops, guided tours throughout downtown Los Angeles will provide attendees exclusive insight into some of the city’s most innovative design studios and public projects.
