Brisbane Designs Winning Bid for DRS2020

Brisbane will welcome 600 leading minds in global design research after winning hosting rights for the Design Research Society (DRS) Conference 2020, after the bid, led by the Brisbane Convention Bureau in partnership with Griffith University’s Queensland College of Art, was won, it was announced last week.

“The collaboration between the Brisbane Convention Bureau and Griffith University delivered an outstanding bid that showcased our city’s design research credentials, an inclusive cross-disciplinary approach, on-the-ground support and unbeatable location,” said Brisbane Convention Bureau General Manager Juliet Alabaster.

DRS2020 Co-Chair and Head of Design at Griffith University’s Queensland College of Art, Professor Ming Cheung, said winning hosting rights for the conference was a coup for Brisbane and Australia’s design research community. “Hosting DRS2020 will see Brisbane and Griffith University take the lead in promoting excellence in design research,” Professor Cheung said. “With 600 of the world’s most talented academics and designers expected to meet in Brisbane, this conference will also provide significant development opportunities to local researchers, designers and students.”
