AIGA Design Conference   October 13-16, Phoenix, Arizona

Why you should attend “Pivot”

Why should you attend the “Pivot: AIGA Design Conference” in Phoenix this fall?

Demands on designers are greater than ever before.

Design has never had more opportunities to make a difference by working with other disciplines to improve the human experience—and you’ll learn just how to fulfill this great potential at “Pivot.”

But that’s not all:

It’s a worthy investment.

Beyond insights from inspiring speakers, you’ll be able to immerse yourself in educational sessions, hands-on activities in the Design Fair and tailored workshops—making you more productive, more energetic, more effective with clients and more valuable to your firm.

AIGA conferences are a great value.

Pivot offers three full days of top-notch programming, ways to connect and unique experiences that can’t be purchased at a better price. All pre-conference workshops and evening events are included in your ticket price, as are breakfasts, coffee breaks and several networking receptions.

The caliber of the event is stellar.

AIGA is recognized worldwide as an authority on design excellence and an advocate for the effective use of design to create value for clients. (Want proof? Watch videos from the 2009 conference.)

You’ll meet amazing designers.

This conference is a chance to make connections within a larger network, well beyond your local community and chapter and including leaders of the design profession.

Sounds pretty convincing, doesn’t it? Don’t wait a minute longer—go register today!
