Conference ZDW

The conference brings know-how and fresh perspectives not only in the field of design, but also in other sectors. In the coming year, with the subtitle Design that helps, we will venture into the fields of products, services, space and marketing – through lectures, panel discussions and workshops. The conference was supported by EEA and Norway Grants 2014-21 and is part of the project CA2-003 Universal Design – Mapping the Potential and Engaging the New Generation in the Creative Industries.

Design that helps

The ZDW Conference has become a place where at the beginning of May everyone who wants to draw inspiration and meet interesting personalities of design and other fields that show the potential of its use is heading.
After previous years, focusing on connecting design and marketing, this year’s ZDW Conference is turning towards DESIGN THAT HELPS.

Speakers from all over the world

We will bring you the inspiration from countries far, far away. Speakers don´t rotate too quickly, everybody has 30 minutes to speak. And after that, you can ask whatever you want – in front of the audience or later at a coffee break.

All day and night

Get ready for a load of experiences from morning to night. The seventh edition of the conference will once again bring much more than just inspiring and discussion-provoking stories.

What others say about us?

”Since the beginning to the end was treated very nicely and professionally, I was also pleased with the quality of other speakers, I would like to point out 
a designer duo SWINE. I was fascinated by their work. You can watch splendidly made videos about their projects on Vimeo, but only at the conference may happen that they´ll personally invite you to visit them in London.”
