2018 Denver Design Week

Denver Design Week is held in Denver from October 12 to 19. The week-long event celebrates Denver’s creatives from multiple industries including, interior, architecture and technology. The event was first held in 2016 after William Logan and his team saw the need to shine the light on Denver creatives and how Denver can become a hub of technology and innovative ideas. The first year started with a launch that around 600 people attended, showing the interest in Logan and his team’s mission.

Take time this year to attend one or all of the week's events. Event, Day and Week passes are available for purchse on the Denver Design Week website.
