We offer year-round opportunities to leverage NYCxDESIGN’s diverse audience of design professionals and enthusiasts, and spotlight ideas with New York City’s creative community.

Produce an Event with NYCxDESIGN

We’d love to speak with you about custom opportunities where we together develop the content for a live or virtual event, and carry out highly specialized outreach to your specific desired target audiences. This could take the shape of a live or virtual panel discussion about a design topic of your choice, a pop-up activation in your venue, an installation in a highly trafficked public space, a career panel, and more. The co-developed event would receive premiere promotion across NYCxDESIGN’s channels, and we’d conduct specific outreach efforts to your target community. Co-produced events may take place during NYCxDESIGN’s yearly Festival or during other moments throughout the year.

Participate in New York Design Week: May 18-25, 2023

We invite all members of the design community to organize design events as part of the NYCxDESIGN Festival. Group exhibitions, open studios, public installations, panels, virtual events, and more are welcome to be part of New York City’s official celebration of design. Event registration for the 2023 Festival will be open in the coming weeks.
