DARE TO DESIGN BOLDLY.


October 19, 2021
Design To Manufacturing is back for a second year on our all-virtual platform - with more top rated speakers, more in-depth topics and more demonstrations on how to use your design tools to create products that go to the extreme.
You'll hear from industry trailblazers and how the tools they use have radically changed the way they design everything – from backcountry ski equipment to waterslides, racing parts, water sports and more.
Join us for a day filled with insider tricks to get your adrenaline going and boost your designs, dive into the latest technology, and conquer any obstacles you're facing. Sign up now!
