We'll start the day with an hour for registration from 8am-9am. Settle in with a coffee and we'll start with our featured presentations in the Florence Simmons Performance Hall. Jud Haynes will give his keynote presentation first, followed by a viewing of the new documentary "Design Canada".


Lunch will be catered on site by Leonhard's and is included in the cost of the ticket. This will give you a chance to catch up with old friends and introduce yourself to some new ones.


A series of presentations, panels, and discussions will take place in the MacKinnon Auditorium. Presentations will feature content on UI/UX, Illustration and design related issues.

After a day packed with information and conversation, we’ll all be ready to relax with a chilled beverage at the Craft Beer Corner.
