The Dieline Conference

The Dieline, the leading resource for the packaging design industry, has been partnering with WOW Design Live since 2010 when we launched the first annual The Dieline Conference, and hosted The Dieline Awards. Over the past six years The Dieline Conference has evolved to become an integral part of the WOW Design Live program and experience. We are thrilled to continue with this collaboration, and as you peruse the program look for sessions labeled “by The Dieline” to find the programming developed by The Dieline and its founder Andrew Gibbs.

“Everything about the conference is extremely beneficial. The creative inspiration, the techniques learned to work smarter and more efficiently, and the endless opportunity in the resource center, just to name a few.

It’s the connections, for me, that make it all worthwhile. The four conferences I’ve attended have spanned nine years. Nine years ago I met a bunch of people that to this day, I consider some of my best friends. We may live around the country and the world, but we stay in touch. Connected.

Everyone at WOW Design Live, thank you for this conference. Believe it or not, it’s changing the world.”

“I’ve received several design commissions through WOWies’ referrals. All those commissions came at the right time, and every one of those experiences was great.
