An Update Regarding HOW Media and F+W

Some of you may have heard the unfortunate news that HOW Magazine, Print Magazine and their affiliated brands and websites have ceased operations. We want to reassure all of you that HOW Design Live is alive and well! While we maintained a successful partnership with these brands in recent years, in 2015 their parent company sold HOW Design Live to Emerald Expositions, and our event has been thriving under this ownership ever since.

HOW Design Live 2020 is taking place May 4-7 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston. We’re in the process of developing the amazing conference content that you’ve come to expect, and we look forward to announcing several regional meet-ups for our loyal community of creatives in the coming months. Furthermore, we continue to work with the most incredible program partners in the business including Debbie Millman, Andrew Gibbs and Jessica Deseo at Dieline, Ilise Benun, Stephen Gates and Zac Petit, to name just a few. Without them – and you – our continued success would not be possible!

As always, we are here to answer any and all of your questions. However, we can only answer those questions specific to the HOW Design Live Conference. If you have any questions specific to HOW Media or F+W, please visit

We’ll be opening registration for HOW Design Live 2020 next week! In the meantime, be sure to be in the know on all things HOW Design Live by visiting our website, blog, Facebook and Instagram pages to learn more about the event. We look forward to seeing all of you in May!
