An essential event for design-related enterprises, Platform established this dynamic conference – with partners Julian and Trevyn McGowan of The Guild Group – in 2014. Business of Design provides an inclusive platform for design professionals, artisans, designers, manufacturers and small to medium enterprises and corporations in the design-related industries to hone their business skills by offering practical advice, best-practice guides and local expertise. This annual conference takes place in both Johannesburg and Cape Town.

To date:
146 top industry speakers
1 387 delegates

“There was a wonderful balance of motivational, practical and inspirational material. The speakers gave very useful insights and it was a great across-the-board presentation of the best South African creative design and business. This will certainly impact the way I run my business, as the conference gave me a generous set of tools to work with. I’m highly motivated to turn my business into an asset.” – Li Parker, Delegate
