"Let’s get real: the world of business is changing dramatically. Every day, we’re confronted with news of a rollercoaster economy, environmental actions and behaviors, and corporate pressure to succeed. Every day, we confront constantly evolving challenges that affect our roles as design leaders. What will have the biggest impact on our lives and work? How can we manage, meet, and change the future?
Facing/Changing – Changing/Facing REALITIES will look squarely into key realities, how to face them, and how to change them.

- Economic Realities
- Sustainability Realities
- Systems and Complexity Realities
- Corporate Culture Realities

Join us as we get current, get equipped, and get connected. The speakers, discussions, and workshops will explore how design management can evolve and step forward to provide key business leadership for today’s changing realities. Open your mind, and come to face, and change, the realities of our times.
The conference will mix in a taste of the influence of local design with “Design Magic in Milan.” For years, Milan has been associated with some of the world’s finest automobiles, perfumes, furniture, household goods, and of course, high fashion. Not only is great design happening in Milan, but great new design thinking as well. Milan is the place to come and learn.
Design Management Europe 13 will be held in Milan’s premier design museum, La Triennale di Milano. La Triennale is an intrinsic part of Milan’s cultural and economic life, and will provide an inspirational learning environment.
For more than a decade, DMI has explored the best in design management thinking in the major cities in Europe. Through structured presentations, focused group discussions, and an exploration of Milan’s top design museum, this is the place to be!"
