Design Date Webinars
Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour is committed to hosting conversations in the company of design’s greatest minds. For years, we have informed, inspired and entertained audiences with talks on the main stage.
Now, we take our Conversations in Designs online. Renamed, ‘Design Date’, we are creating a virtual platform for a genuine conversation about things that matter for those who love design. These webinars are not skills training, but interactive dialogues that encourage insight and creative thinking. They will offer relevant content that will keep our design community in touch and inspired.
Keep an eye on our social channels @designcentrech and search for #DesignDateAtDCCH for more information.
