The premiere gathering of immersive creators worldwide.
February 22-23, 2019 • San Francisco

The Immersive Design Summit returns in 2019!

In 2018, the Immersive Design Summit brought together some of the leading creators in the immersive arts to share thoughts and ideas, creating new friendships and inspiring new projects.

Our home for the next Immersive Design Summit will be the lovely Swedish American Music Hall in San Francisco, CA. We’ll be taking over the entire venue on February 22-23, 2019. We can’t wait to meet you there!

Applications to attend the Immersive Design Summit go live on October 18 and stay open until November 15. People from underrepresented backgrounds will be especially encouraged to apply. We’ll also announce pricing on October 18.

We’ve begun posting videos from the first Immersive Design Summit onto YouTube. And be sure to follow @designimmersive on Twitter and Instagram for the latest announcements!
