Dates are set, plans are in motion, and we’re doing our most embarrassing happy dance!

The Design & Content Conference is back in Vancouver for our FOURTH year on July 25-27, 2018. We’ll be returning to the SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts in historic Gastown, one of our favourite parts of Vancouver.

We already have a squee-worthy lineup of speakers and practical, skill-building workshops. Stay tuned — we’ll be adding more speakers in the weeks to come. If you have something to share in a 30-45-minute talk, our call for speakers is open now until December 19, 2017. We’d love to hear from you!

If you’re not on our mailing list—change that now! 20 pre-release tickets — available to our mailing list — go on sale December 4, 2017 at 9am PST. Save $200 on early-bird pricing and get first pick of our workshops. These tickets go very quickly, so mark your calendars! We’ll send out a link for that on December 3rd to our mailing list.

New and exciting for 2018!

Scholarship program

Every year we do our best to make it possible for anyone who can’t afford it to come to DCC This year, you can help too! When you buy your ticket, you’ll have the option to donate $25, $50, $100, or $500 towards someone else’s ticket. We’re in this together as the DCC community, and we’re excited to help pay it forward. The scholarship applications will open on December 5th. Watch for more details in the next two weeks.

Childcare discount

We’re offering 10% off to ease the burden of childcare costs on top of the cost of attending DCC. If attending DCC18 means you need to arrange for childcare, all you need to do is use the code childcare when you register.

URL update

In partnership with the folks at we.design, we snagged a new URL for 2018: content.design. We’re thankful and excited to welcome back we.design as a sponsor for DCC18.

Our 2018 MCs

We’re thrilled to have Geoffrey Daniel join Stevie Nguyen to co-host DCC18. Yay everyone!

We hope you’re excited, too! We’ve got more big announcements around the corner, so watch this space and get ready to grab your DCC18 tickets. Tickets go on sale December 5th at 9am PST. Don’t miss out on registering for one of our workshops and saving big. The event sells out early each year and we’d love to see you there!
