Thank you to everybody who attended the Global Design Forum 2013

The Global Design Forum is the pre-eminent agenda setting event for design, staged during and organised by the London Design Festival.


Held in 2012, the inaugural Forum opened the ‘future of design’ debate. It was a

sell-out event, attracting over 250 delegates from around the world including business owners, key decision makers, creative directors, designers and policy makers.


The Global Design Forum is the unique platform for the world’s most challenging thinking about the future of human society and design’s role in it. In 2013 the event addressed some of the most turbulent and critical areas of activity: Innovation, Urbanism, Brand and Creativity, and the realisation of the ‘Big Idea’. View the 2013 programme here.


Highlights from the Global Design Forum 16-17 September 2013 will be released shortly.
