Ideate Conference

Friday, December 7, 2018

180 New Montgomery Street, 5th Floor


The Ideate Conference launched in 2015 and has become an established end-of-semester event for students in The School of Web Design and New Media (WNM). The conference brings together students, industry leaders, and program alumni for a day of education, networking, and celebration. Ideate has been a successful launchpad for WNM students to make meaningful industry connections that will often lead to future internship or full-time job opportunities, and we are pleased to partner with The School of Advertising (ADV) for the fall 2018 event.
