Celebrate design this November at DesignThinkers and beyond with 'extra' events across Toronto

Beyond the two-day conference at the Sony Centre for Performing Arts, the DesignThinkers 2014 includes tons of additional programming and opportunities to explore new ideas and celebrate all things creative. Don't miss the chance to connect with other creatives, explore innovative strategies and be inspired at these 'extra' events across the city.  


For DesignThinkers delegates, this year's amazing line-up of speakers will be complimented by additional events and programs happening alongside the presentations. On Nov 6, check out the Type Quiz happening over the conference lunch break to test your mettle with fellow delegates and win typographic prizes. After our closing keynote on Nov 7, conference attendees are also invited to stop by the DT Delegate Party at Storys (space is limited, first come-first served). Other extras to check out at the conference include the two Bring a Client sessions for Provisional Members and RGDs, who can invite a guest to hear a talk from either Marty Neumeier (Nov 6) or Andy Epstein (Nov 7), and the DesignThinker of the Year Award (details coming soon!)  


Whether you're attending the conference or not, there are many other opportunities for both delegates and non-delegates to connect, explore and be inspired by creative visionaries in Toronto this November. On Nov 5 and 8, all are invited to register for special interactive workshops with Paddy Harrington RGD and DT Speakers Karen McGrane, Marty Neumeier and Dave Holston. Those interested can also check out creative workspaces in downtown Toronto at the Studio Open Doors on Nov 5. Other creative industry events include a screening of Milton Glaser: To Inform and Delight at Bloor Hot Docs Cinema on Nov 6, the ADCC Awards at the Telus Centre for Performance and Learning on Nov 6, and the 2014 So(cial) Good Design Awards Exhibit on display at Terminal 1 of the Pearson International Airport Nov 4-Jan 9.  


On Nov 5 we're also excited to share two events for Student RGDs, Provisional RGDs and DT delegates featuring conference speakers: the Higher Learning Master Class with Henry Hobson presented by TIFF and a Student Lecture with Philippe Apeloig at OCAD.
