Design your Design Week Experience

Browse the events on the Programs page.

  • Online live events with a timeslot require registration so you can receive the details to access the events.
  • Events that are "free all week" will be released on the event pages September 9 and will be available for you to explore on your own time.

Register for online live events now to reserve your space!

  • You'll find an orange REGISTER button on each event page.
  • Add the event to your calendar. (There's a quick link to do this right above the REGISTER button on the event page.)
  • Any links you receive for Zoom sessions are meant for you only. Don't share them with others!

Prepping for Design Week

  • Before your online live events start, log into Eventbrite and pull up your Eventbrite confirmation email(s). (Most events are on Zoom, but there are a few on other platforms such as Crowdcast and Kast.)
  • Will I be visible in the events I attend? That depends. Most sessions are presented as Zoom Meetings or Zoom Webinars. You'll be visible in a Zoom Meeting but not in a Webinar. You can always turn off your camera in a Meeting if you prefer not to be shown.
  • Get creative and download the SDDW Zoom backgrounds, if you'd like!
  • For Zoom sessions, log on a little early, in case you might need to do a quick registration to enter the session.
  • How to log in to Zoom
  • How to log in to Kast (for UX Speakeasy event)
  • How to log in to Crowdcast
