For ICON8, the faster you register for the conference, the more dough you'll have left over for all the great coffee, beer, and food in Portland. A limited number of tickets at various discount levels will be available. 

Here's how it works. As a block of tickets sells out, a new block at a higher price point will be offered. Seating is limited and tickets will go fast, so keep an eye on the count down so you don't miss out on the best available price.

ICON The Illustration Conference

ICON The Illustration Conference, a not-for-profit, one-of-a-kind, global happening was created over ten years ago to inform, inspire and invigorate the illustration community. Since our very first conference in 1999, ICON has played an important role in enriching the diverse community of professional image makers and creatives. Showcasing the most prominent illustrators, designers, art directors, visual thinkers and educators of our day, ICON is loaded with content, from topical debates about the current state of the industry; studio practice and inspiration; practical opportunities for learning and professional growth to the role education plays in a constantly evolving field. Through main stage presentations, hands-on workshops, exhibitions and networking events over a four-day period, ICON brings the industry together for a highly anticipated event.
