About this event

“Gain” is the premier biennial event for business and design leaders.

Design has the power to change the direction of businesses, provide fuel for economies and even change lives. Provocative thinkers from a wide range of disciplines will inspire and reinvigorate at this year’s “Gain: AIGA Design and Business” conference, which will focus on the theme “Design (Re)Invents.”

Attendees will learn how industry leaders addressed business challenges through design—and how they reinvented their businesses, their strategies and even themselves. We’ll hear business, design and thought leaders share their innovative approaches to generating greater return on investment, fostering emotional connections and providing positive brand experiences for customers. And the discussions will continue beyond the stage with networking receptions, evening events and more to engage with ideas and with each other.

AIGA conference policies

AIGA policies toward conference activities have been developed based on experience and with a firm commitment to follow practices that are fair, equitable and consistent. They are applied across all circumstances to assure each participant that he or she is being treated the same as any other participant as a matter of trust. Therefore, exceptions are not given unless the policy is to be changed for all participants. Policies also reflect the need to be able to administer practices fairly and consistently with limited staff resources, which will result in certain policies having been established for administrative viability.
