New Delhi: DesignUp, one of the most influential design-in-tech events in India and Southeast Asia is coming up with its 5th edition. To be held for select hours every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday starting 11th June to 20th June, the conference has also been designed to support communities during these tumultuous times through a fundraising event. As part of the #DesignUpForACause initiative, 100 percent of the proceeds will be extended to organizations working in rural and deeper pockets of the country. Through the conference and the fundraising event, the organizers aim to raise INR 10 million or more.
Speaking about the DesignUp 2021 Conference, Jay Dutta, Founder/Curator DesignUp Conference & SVP at MakeMyTrip, said “As India slowly emerges from the second wave, we hope to make a difference through the DesignUp 2021 conference by extending support to people fighting the severity of the second wave in the rural parts of India.”
This year, DesignUp has an iconic lineup of speakers and has gone beyond its focus areas of Design-In-Tech (Ux, Interaction, Product, Data, etc) to have representation from the world of branding, marketing, motion graphics, illustration & storytelling, content, and much more.
