2024 In-House Design Conference: What to expect

The RGD's 2024 In-House Design Conference takes place on June 20 in Toronto. With both in-person and streaming options, the conference offers in-house creatives, whether solo or part of a creative team, opportunities to expand their knowledge, refine skills, network and advance their careers in the in-house creative realm.

“Many in-house designers working solo or on small teams struggle to find time to focus on career growth and address unique challenges like working with the same brand every day and interacting with client who are also our coworkers! That's why RGD's In-house Design Conference is so important—it brings together the in-house community in Canada and around the world to learn, share and bond.”
Meghan D'Mello RGD
“The In-House Design Conference offers more than professional talks and roundtables; you’re stepping into a world where designers can come together to share, connect and inspire. It’s a place where you can network with like-minded peers who truly understand your passion and journey in the creative industry.”
Alexandra Vranjesevic RGD
