About

The design industry is currently the fastest growing sector across Kirklees. Huddersfield has an amazing wealth of talent and Wilson’s Republic Conference will aim to explore our design ‘roots’, by bringing together the network to stimulate a conversation of what part we can play in the future of Huddersfield.

Who should attend?

Design freelancers, agencies and creatives of all disciplines can attend. Topics will cover working with the design process, accounting, intellectual property, business development and more.

As well as our conference programme, there will be space to work and the opportunity to get one-to-one feedback on your portfolio by a professional.
