IOD26 Foshan China

Ideas on Design partnered with 91 ANT Technology Network and De Tao Masters Group to present its 26th annual International Design Program in Foshan, China. Ideas on Design draws on the experiences and connections built over 25 years presenting the agIdeas International Design Conferences in Melbourne, Australia.

Leading designers presented their insights and experiences and invited conversations to:

  • share and exchange knowledge about the role of design to build business advantage and improve standards of living
  • broaden our view of design and explore design excellence as it is being practiced around the world
  • gain insight into the priorities and practices of some of the world’s design leaders
  • explore solutions to complex social and commercial needs
  • build design capability within the design community and the broader business community

The IOD26 program included a design forum, business program and networking events to foster collaboration and the sharing of knowledge. Attendees were invited to join us to explore the power of design with some of the world’s most highly acclaimed designers across visual communication, built environment, industrial and product design and interactive media.
