Since 1959, WDO Members have met biennially to attend the World Design Assembly™ (formerly General Assembly). This two-day event empowers WDO Members with the authority to set the operational direction of the organization, elect its leadership and address a number of key issues affecting the industry.

More recently, the Assembly encourages participation from a wider group of stakeholders interested in supporting WDO’s mission of design for a better world.

The bid process for hosting the 2021 World Design Assembly has been launched! Find out more about hosting this event and how your city can benefit from the gathering of this international design community.
