DesignCon is A Smart Event


What Is a Smart Event?

It’s a hybrid experience that extends the value of DesignCon beyond the event’s three days in Santa Clara, CA, through the use of a digital platform. Ahead of and after the in-person event, all attendees, speakers, and exhibitors will have access to our Swapcard digital platform where you can:

  • Gain access to exclusive educational sessions with industry leaders
  • Plan your on-site experience by viewing exhibitor profiles, featuring white papers, product information, videos, and product photos
  • Connect with other attendees and speakers online, and schedule meetings face to face or on the digital platform
  • Bookmark sessions and exhibitors of interest

DesignCon’s digital platform will also house its educational session materials, including slides and technical papers. 

After DesignCon’s in-person event, January 31 – February 2, 2023, in Santa Clara, CA, we will host an online offering on our digital platform in April 2023, featuring encore presentations of select sessions recorded at DesignCon, as well as new education and access to exhibitors. Please check back here for more information after the in-person event.
