Produce an Event with NYCxDESIGN

Imagine a live or virtual panel discussion on a design topic of your choosing, a pop-up activation within your venue, or an installation in a bustling public space — among other creative formats.
A co-developed event would receive premier promotion across NYCxDESIGNs channels, and we would conduct focused outreach efforts to engage your target community. These co-produced events could unfold during NYCxDESIGNs annual Festival or at other strategic moments throughout the year. 
Lets explore the possibilities together!
