I can honestly say I’ve never been as excited for a trip to Vegas as I am now that Roman Mars (creator of the 99% Invisible podcast) has signed on for a second year as our 2016 AIGA Design Conference host. If you were at the last conference in New Orleans you know what I’m talking about when I use words like “amazing” and “effervescent” to describe his onstage skills, and this time promises to be better than ever (and no, our communications director didn’t just tell me to say that).

On top of other exciting main stage speaker announcements (stay tuned for those), Mars will crown the event by performing a new episode of 99% Invisible exclusively for the 2016 AIGA Design Conference audience. So, you know, don’t miss it.

Register before February 2 for the best rate you’ll get all year, and follow @AIGAdesign on Twitter #AIGAdesign for the latest updates and speaker announcements.

The 2016 AIGA Design Conference at the Mirage in Las Vegas, October 17-19, is bigger than ever this year, with captivating speakers, star-studded parties, exceptional hands-on workshops, and thousands of influential creatives from all over the world.
