One thing we know by now is that making plans is an unpredictable and uncertain business. 2020 might (still) have surprises in store, but we are trying to keep adequate to the challenges. The third edition of MELBA is different from the previous ones. Hybrid and reformatted in order to make the events accessible and live (online and live-live) even in COVID-19 times.


MELBA keeps on mixing good design meaningfully in a one-of-a-kind experience that boosts the creative profession, brings valuable ideas on the spotlight and triggers beneficial impact. Here is the quick overview of the program. Make sure you visit the cool website we have this year (courtesy of NEXT-DC).
