Join Us at the HOW Interactive Design Conference

Design is your first love. On the HOW team, it’s ours, too. And as user interfaces and users themselves become ever more sophisticated, savvy companies are finally catching on to the crucial business value of good design. If you can leverage technology to create engaging customer experiences, you’ll be in high demand.

That’s where the HOW Interactive Design Conference comes in. As the only web design conference that puts the emphasis squarely on design and the design process, HIDC will position you to achieve your creative vision on any screen.


For over 20 years, HOW and the HOW Conferences have nurtured quality design and helped designers grow their careers. HOW Design Live, our flagship event and the industry’s largest, has established an industry standard for excellence and is considered the “must-attend” conference of the year for designers.

HOW Interactive Design Conference maintains that standard of excellence in events while distilling HOW’s core mission into a focused approach: To keep you current in new design thinking—including the intersection of technology and design—while equipping you with practical approaches to apply in the field.

The conference’s expert speakers—all current practitioners actively working with clients-will present a thoughtfully curated mix of theory and practice designed to give you a solid foundation in web design principles, as well as real-world strategies you’ll use to solve design problems as soon as you get back to work.

We’ve assembled unique programming for each location that delves into subjects like user experience and interaction design, visual design and technology, and compelling design case studies  and more, with a focus on preparing you to put this new knowledge to work. It’s a delicate balance we’ve worked hard to strike with a program that will inspire, inform and prepare.

Make the investment to spend a few days at one of the three locations. Meet designers, project managers, content creators and marketers working in the interactive space. You might even find your next team member or job opportunity onsite. Connect with other creatives who are investing in their future by growing their skill set—and taking time away from the daily grind.

This year, the HIDC series will come to three cities, and this year, for the first time ever, we’re offering a completely unique experience in each city. Explore the programming for each below:
