Include Conferences

Include is a biennial international conference that focuses on issues central to inclusive and people-centred design.

The first Include conference was held in 2001 and 2013 was the seventh in the series. Previous themes have explored ways of bringing the inclusive design community together, making the business case for inclusive design, the global perspective of inclusive design for designers, managers and educators, the strategies for involving people in design and innovation through people-centred design. Include is a unique event that brings together those interested in inclusive and people-centred design.

The first six conferences were held at the Royal College of Art, however  in 2013, for the first time, the conference was held in Hong Kong. Include Asia 2013 was held at the Hong Kong Design Centre as part of Knowledge of Design Week 2013.
