Since 1959, WDO Members have met biennially to attend the World Design Assembly™ (formerly General Assembly). This two-day event, proceeded by a Research and Education Forum, 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.
