Cusp Conference

Come to the Cusp Conference 2018 October 24-25, and stay at the nearby and affordable LaQuinta Inn & Suites in historic Hyde Park!

The Cusp Conference is all about broad thinking. It’s about getting people out of the world they know and immersing them in a flood of ideas that ultimately help break down barriers and connect unknown dots. And it’s about finding ideas and relevance in unexpected places. This year’s theme is Looking Back—on a Decade of Forward Thinking.

The Cusp Conference is not a ‘how to design things’ conference. It’s eclectic by design, intended to provoke cross-pollination of ideas and generate new thinking. Attendees enjoy 25+ inspiring and thought-provoking presentations by people who are passionate about designing a better future.

Guest speakers include: Thompson Aderinkomi, co-founder and CEO of Nice Healthcare, a direct primary care practice that delivers all care in the comfort of the patient’s home, and co-founder and CEO of Relate, an intelligent platform that helps people be better versions of themselves. George Aye, co-founder, Chicago-based Greater Good Studio with the belief that design can advance equity for all. Ida Benedetto, an experiences designer and strategist who sparks new insight through adventure and play.
