"Good design is often the defining element of the products, businesses, environments and sciences that become legendary,” said Josh Tyrangiel, editor of Bloomberg Businessweek. “These designers are setting the bar for innovation in their respective fields, and at this event they can venture out of their professional enclaves, come together, perhaps even collide, in unexpected and provocative groupings, to discuss process, passions, influences, successes, and failures."

“At Bloomberg Businessweek our mission is to surprise, delight, and inform our entrepreneurial readers every week by giving them access to the insight of our editors and writers and the wisdom of the sharpest business minds around the globe,” said Paul Bascobert, President of Bloomberg Businessweek. “We fulfill that promise with this conference, at which C-suite attendees will learn where design is leading businesses and communities next, and enjoy one-on-one interactions with the Businessweek team and the stellar roster of presenters.”
