About Us – Celebrating 26 years

The Western Design Conference (WDC) brings together artists, scholars, collectors, interior designers, architects, and fashion designers with a passion for the West. From documented American craft, to home design, to fashion, the show is expanding to encompass all aspects of the best of Western design. This event celebrates functional museum-quality creations capturing the spirit of the West.

During the Exhibit + Sale you’ll meet the artists whose handcrafted works in leather, metal, home accents, woodworking, mixed media, jewelry, and fashion will be showcased and available for purchase at our spectacular location in beautiful Jackson Hole. Over $19,000 worth of cash awards are given out annually. The energy generated by tourists, artists, local businesses, and residents promises to make the WDC unforgettable—for both exhibitors and attendees.
