The Annual Conference is the keystone to building and sustaining community for the Leaders of Design Council. We create a dynamic “melting pot’ of our esteemed members -  designers, sponsors, international influencers and media in intriguing locations, to inspire our members to be informed by fresh knowledge gathered from a new city, new individuals and new alliances. The strategy for our success lies in these ingredients: 
  • A special location, personally scouted and curated by our Founders who select exclusive experiences in an exotic location to avoid distractions of our daily professional and personal lives
  • A special focus on the people of our community, ensuring all members meet and spend both official and informal times together 
  • A mixture of content to provide intellectual and creative stimulation from both inside and outside the field of design 
  • Carefully constructed logistics, where members are hosted 24-7 by our Founders and our consistent Leaders of Design Council team In each city, we marvel at new sights and new experiences.
In Lisbon, members enjoyed private dinners at Palacio Foz, Museu Nacional dos Coches and Kais.   All participants spent a day at Pavilhao de Portugal and all enjoyed tours of BELEM including Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, Belem Tower, Discovery Monument; the Restoration Museum and Workshop & Crusadere Castle of St. George and a visit to the Tile Museum where they all had the opportunities to make tiles in a group workshop.
