Are you a student, graduate, professional or enthusiast?
Student and Graduate registrations are offered in a lower price bracket to ensure The Design Conference is affordable and accessible to the entire creative industry. Attendees choosing the Student or Graduate option MUST produce qualifying ID upon entry. Failure to do so MAY result in refusal of entry without refund.

Would you like to attend the full event or one day only?
Two day tickets are offered at a lower price bracket to increase value. Attendees who split a single two-day pass between two different people MAY be refused entry without refund.

Would you like to upgrade to a priority experience and express entry?
Priority ticket holders will not only receive the best seats in the house, they will also receive priority entry to the event sessions, in-event breakouts and all side events. With 700 plus attendees for this years event, this is an outstanding upgrade for anyone hoping to make the most of their experience.

Your registration:
The Design Conference passes are not mailed to your address. A printable PDF document will be sent to your registered email address the week of the conference and is to be brought along with you. Your conference pass is to be collected at the event and issued after a valid form of ID has been produced. Issuing of passes commences between 9am & 10am at the beginning of day one at each event. If you have a single Friday pass, you will still be able to register on Friday morning. Please avoid being late as we aim to start at 12 noon sharp each day.

Student / Lecturer Registrations:
Current, legible and valid student ID must be shown upon entry for all persons hoping to enter with a student pass. If you do not have correct ID, you will be denied entry into the event, no exceptions. If you’re not sure that your ID is valid, please email for confirmation.

Late Arrivals
If you know you’re going to make a late arrival, please email to let us know.
