Wait, Bend Design is In-Person AND Virtual?


That’s right! We're offering a limited number of In-Person Passes to the event, while remaining accessible through our All-Access Virtual Program. If you are attending virtually, you will watch Speaker presentations happening in real time. That said, our Speakers who will be presenting virtually, will do so via livestream, on view for both In-Person and virtual viewers.

Five In-Person Speakers. Two Virtual Speakers. Note: All Speaker presentations will be available online with a Virtual Pass.

Why are some tickets sliding scale and some set prices?


Bend Design is dedicated to being an accessible event. Our Virtual ticket payments are built on a sliding scale, intended to encourage accessibility, equity and inclusion. Your one payment using the sliding scale covers all virtual speakers. In line with this mission, we are also offering A La Carte tickets, to see individual speakers virtually. Due to limitations on capacity in our covid world, all in-person tickets and events are a set price.
