d3 Waterfront, Dubai Design District (d3)
Held under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, in strategic partnership with the Dubai Design District (d3) and supported by the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, Downtown Design returns this November (14 - 17) for its fifth edition as the commercial centrepiece of Dubai Design Week.
The fair takes a curatorial approach to the visitor experience with the regional buyer in mind, selecting a mix of leading, established brands that need a strategic gateway to the region, as well as high quality emerging brands exhibiting on an international platform for the first time. The fifth edition of the fair brings together over 150 brands from 25 countries. Visitors will discover a rich diversity of contemporary design from iconic international brands through to unique pieces by designers featured for the very first time on the international design circuit.
Downtown Design reaffirms its position as a fair of discovery this year with the return of the ICE pavilion which will presents emerging design brands.
As part of Dubai Design Week's programme, each day of the fair will feature a series of industry talks and panel discussions targeted specifically at the region’s architecture and design community. Covering a wide range of industry topics including colour trends, spatial experience, product innovation and Dubai’s evolving architectural landscape, the programme will share knowledge and insight on the region’s continually changing world of design.
Combined with an expanded Buyers Programme that attracts buyers from the MENASA region and beyond, brands can engage with a growing population of architects and interior designers, extending Downtown Design’s reach as the focal event of the design industry in November.
