BDF Conference: June 2025
BDF Conference will return in 2024. Read on to find out more about the format and join us in Birmingham.
BDF Conference will return in 2025, taking the best bits of the Birmingham Design Festival and condensing it into a smaller format that’s just as fun and accessible. You can expect a host of familiar faces and exceptional design talent to learn from this year in June.
A day of crafting and learning held at Birmingham City University and around Birmingham, followed by some talks finishing with the BDF Social.
Join us for a day-long schedule of talks from an unmissable line-up of designers and creatives.
Tickers will be available for workshops, side-events and the Conference itself in 2025.
Two day pass
Access to the conference across both days with early access to workshop registration.
