I've been attending OFFF (Barcelona) for the past 2 years and I'm very excited for this years speakers! (IDEO, Tobias Van Schneider, Digital Kitchen, …)

Which conference are you most excited about?

    Valiocon! Because it's near my home, is always fun and it has the right balance of speakers. Drew Wilson focusses on bringing in speakers who are currently doing stuff, rather than just talking about doing stuff. I've been to other large and well-known confs and been underwhelmed. Many speakers recycle the same content that you could typically find right on their blog or Twitter account. I've been to 3 or 4 Valiocons and never felt that way about any of the speakers. Good stuff!

    HOW Design Live (because it's here in Atlanta and because I'm speaking), 2016 AIGA Design Conference, and the Black in Design Conference (if they have it again this year, which they totally should).

    The 2016 AIGA Design Conference (Las Vegas). The 2015 Conference left me feeling so inspired and had such great speakers, I can't imagine not trying to go every year.
