Denver Design Week (“DDW”), now in its third consecutive year, is this region’s most inclusive and important design conference with 36 thought-provoking events over the course of eight days in Denver, October 12-19. From tours of new buildings to keynote panel discussions, the conference celebrates our community’s best architecture, design, interior design, branding and UX/UI industries. Speakers include local design notables, such as architect Jeffrey Sheppard, and national speakers from Zaha Hadid and Facebook.
At the intersection where Design, Architecture and Technology merge, DDW seeks to build an understanding of the vital role design plays in our lives and to increase public awareness and appreciating for all aspects of design.
