May 22 – May 23, 2014 Saint Katharine’s Way, London
PD+I returns for 2014 with new branding, a new venue and a brand rich line up of speakers. Chaired once again by Kevin McCullagh, Plan’s founding director and Core 77 columnist, this unique two-day conference will be held May 22-23 at the London’s Guoman Tower hotel.
PD+I 2014 will allow delegates to get under the skin of the hottest new trends, technologies, materials and processes as well as discover new opportunities and how to apply them to future commercial growth. With over 200 delegates expected to attend, the potential for networking and building invaluable contacts within this specialist sector is second to none.
“PD+I has become a regular fixture for heads of design and innovation, leading in-house business designers, design consultancy seniors and academics. This latest conference is no exception, once again providing lively debate and in depth analysis of current and future design trends and challenges from key thought leaders and heads of industry,” stated Conference Director Jerry Taylor.
“As we emerge from one of the toughest economic climates in recent times, the importance of design and innovation and the role these disciplines can play to support sustained growth will be at the heart of many of our conference papers. With sector specific themes spanning automotive, FMCG and healthcare, topics include management, entrepreneurship, influence and ethics, and education.”
