Bringing the world’s top designers and business leaders together to discover how design makes the world better, smarter, cooler, and more innovative.

Past presenters include: Gadi Amit, Rebekka Bay, Yves Behar, Brian Chesky, Elizabeth Diller, Tony Fadell, Jeanne Gang, Florentijn Hofman, Hosain Rahman, and Patricia Urquiola.

“There was a lot of know-how in the audience, definitely an engaged and professional audience, where everyone could actually have spoken onstage.”

–Yves Béhar, fuseproject

“Bloomberg Businessweek Design is the intersection of design, business, and innovative engineering. Not to be missed by anyone ambitious.”

–Daniel Kim, Founder and CEO, Lit Motors

“A spinning flurry of ideas, creations, stories and a few hilarious antecdotes from an outstanding Dutch artist (Florentijn Hofman). Bloomberg Businessweek Design 2014 was the standout of the conferences I attended last year and not to be missed.”
–Gadi Amit, President, NewDealDesign

“I really enjoyed speaking at the inaugural Bloomberg Design Conference. It ran like clockwork— smart, charming speakers in a great venue with world-class attendees. I look forward to being in the audience for the next one.”

–Michael B. Johnson, Pixar Animation Studios
