The annual Design Indaba conference and expo is among the world's leading design events. The Design Indaba conference hosts over 40 speakers and 2 500 delegates while the Design Indaba expo, which provides a commercial platform for the best South African designers to expose their creative talent to the world, is even more popular.
Since 1995, the Design Indaba has invited the world's top creative minds to address professionals from the creative, corporate and educational sectors in South Africa. Championing creativity that enhances every aspect of the world around us, Design Indaba recognises graphic design, advertising, film, music, fashion design, industrial design, architecture, craft, visual art, new media, publishing, broadcasting and performing arts as interdisciplinary.
While the conference focuses on case studies and ingenious problem solving, rather than simply eye-catching portfolios, the Design Indaba expo certainly does try to catch the eye. It is the leading creative design showcase in the country, with hundreds of exhibitors at the event.
South African design products and services on display range from advertising, architecture, craft, décor, film, fashion, graphic design, interior design and jewellery, to new media, publishing, product design and visual media.Upcoming Events:
