In May, 700 participants gathered in 11 cities on five continents for the second round of DMI's extremely popular Night Out series. Despite the diverse and far-flung nature of the events, they were all united under the common topic of "Inspiring Design Entrepreneurship." The wealth of experience and talent of the local DMI communities inspires and encourages more face-to-face connections in our virtual world. Find out what you missed, view photos, videos, and reports from the May Night Out events.
Launched in February 2012 in response to our members desire to connect more locally. These quarterly events
are hosted by local DMI members and provide a source of support and partnership for today’s critical issues,
connecting cross-disciplinary design and business leaders in their local communities, then sharing these global
insights with the entire DMI community on the DMI website following the events.
DMI’s first events, held in the mid-1970s at a Boston bar, grew from a small group of Design Managers
confessing the challenges they were facing in their roles, and sharing solutions, methods and empathies over a
few beers. DMI Night Out continues this tradition of like-minded people sharing their knowledge around current
issues facing design leaders.
