Need a reason to convince your boss or get you out the door? Here are five reasons why you should register for the HOW Interactive Design Conference:

  1. HOW Conferences are awesome. We not only focus on creating an immersive learning experience that is unmatched by any other conference, but we also make it fun. Laughter and play are all key components in the creative process and we offer both.
  2. We are tailoring our sessions to focus more on the needs of those creatives working within in-house departments. This doesn’t exclude people who are working freelance or in small design firms as there are many topics that serve anyone doing interactive design work, but the in-house environment poses unique challenges and opportunities.
  3. Many of our speakers are educators or designers who have worked in-house. We look for speakers that can really teach and whose experiences mirror your own. All of our speakers are subject matter experts. You will learn something that will help you solve a design problem or complete a project.
  4. If you plan to send two or more people, you’ll save an extra $50 per person.
  5. Most importantly attending one of the HIDC events will help you advance your career. We will teach you how to think about interactive design, how to approach a project and the skills needed to complete a project. As you know web skills are in demand. We can help you.
