Apple Chief Design Officer Jony Ive will be making an appearance in Washington D.C. and is helming a talk titled "The Future of Design" with Steve Jobs biography author Rick Tetzeli.

The Smithsonian reports that ticket reservations for the event are all claimed. However, there is an online waitlist for people who want to attend — and the possibility of getting a seat the day of on a first-come first-served basis.

AppleInsider got the notification at 3 a.m. on Wednesday morning. By 7 a.m., the ticket reservations were already depleted.

"Jonathan Ive, Chief Design Officer of Apple, is widely considered the world's most influential industrial designer and plays a key role in Apple's status as one of the most recognized and innovative brands in history," writes the Smithsonian, publicizing the talk. "As CDO, he is behind all aspects of the look and feel of the iPhone, iPad, MacBook, and Apple watch— as well as major architectural projects like Apple Park— and new ideas and initiatives in development."

The event will be held in the Ring Auditorium in the Smithsonian. It is being organized by the Hirshhorn Museum, and is presented in partnership with the Smithsonian Magazine.

Ive also recently spoke in New York City. At that event, he discussed the joy of joining Apple, the iPhone X design versus available technology, and how Steve Jobs taught him how to say no.

Rick Tetzeli is the editor-at-large at Fast Company. He also authored the 2015 biography "Becoming Steve Jobs: The Evolution of a Reckless Upstart into a Visionary Leader."
