The DesignOps Global Conference is for design leaders, researchers, developers, practitioners, product managers, service innovators and business leaders that are defining the way we design and develop new products and services.


The conference is in its 4th year and has established itself as the preeminent global conference for professionals leading and scaling research, design, development and innovation using ‘operations principles’ in the digital product-service continuum.

We are an online, carbon net-zero, virtual design conference exploring important issues about how we can operationalise and scale human-centred design, user research, UX design, UI design, product and service design practices and processes. 

Our theme for the 4th Annual DesignOps Global Conference is ‘Designing for the Metaverse, Web 3.0 & Circular Futures’.

Our conference is attended by a wide range of professionals from over 250 of the world’s leading and most inspiring companies and organisations.

Join us online for the 4th DesignOps Global Conference, a virtual event at https://designops-conference.online to understand how research, design and innovation are increasingly concerned with designing immersive experiences, orchestrating new ways of interacting and connecting digital ecologies and landscapes in the Metaverse – a network of 3D virtual worlds focused on social connection and interaction. Learn from leading practitioners why this is one the most important shifts in technology on the Internet for decades.Simultaneously, there is a seismic shift taking place away from polluting and degrading economic models to new circular and sustainable approaches. A new epoch unfolding that is focused on sustainable, regenerative and resilient futures. 

As design professionals we are helping to build these new futures where we unleash new processes and practices, develop new principles and work in new  virtualised environments in the pursuit of creative solutions to address new types of experiences and global challenges.

Join us to debate, learn and understand how research, design, and innovation operations are changing. Learn and share how new processes, practices, principles and products are evolving, as we find new ways of scaling design and adapting our thinking for the Metaverse and the Circular Economy!
