#HOWDesignLive2022 Recap: Top Moments From Boston

HOW Design Live is all about connections and this year’s conference in Boston didn’t disappoint. With over 900+ creative leaders, designers, marketers, influencers, and business owners, HOW Design Live 2022 is officially in the books.

We asked Amy Conover HOW Design Live’s Show Director what she thought and here is what she had to say. “Joy.  If I had to sum up HOW Design Live 2022 in one word, it would be joy. Seeing our community come together again to hear our speakers bring motivating, inspiring and educational sessions from start to finish and to connect again in person with each other and our sponsors and partners in the exhibit hall was incredibly fulfilling. I hope you felt supported, encouraged, included, motivated and…joy! It was so great to see everyone and feel that strong sense of our HOW community. Thank you for believing in us and supporting us and joining us. I will see you in Nashville…. Music City here we come!”

HOW Design Live was filled with exclusive events like HOW Connection, Networking Happy Hour, Speed Coaching, HOW Table Talks, Dieline & Print Awards, Book Signings, Closing Party, and so much more. Attendees also had access to the exhibit hall and 60+ sessions led by some of the the brightest minds in the creative world. Here are some of our favorite snaps from the event:
