Marc Thiele on giving design conferences a 'family atmosphere'

Play & Make is a creative conference that prides itself on being affordable. Currently gearing up for its 13th year - and no longer running under its previous moniker of ‘FlashForum Konferenz’ (or FFK) - the three-day event has been celebrating the fusion of design and technology in one way or another since 2001.

It’s come a long way since then, doubling in size, branching out in focus and pulling together an ever-expanding cross-section of industry-leading speakers and design enthusiasts from across the globe.

This year, Play & Make will be held in Düsseldorf, Germany, from Monday 9 - Wednesday 11 December. Tickets for the two-day conference start at €99 including booking fee, with tickets for the third day of workshops currently TBC.
