Held under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice Chairman, Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, Downtown Design has become the Middle East’s leading, quality-driven trade fair that serves as a dynamic platform for sourcing design talent. Offering the opportunity for ‘best in class’ international brands to connect with the region’s most active buyers, Downtown Design is instrumental in establishing Dubai as a global hub for design.
Set in Dubai Design District from 25 - 28 October, Downtown Design is the commercial heart of Dubai Design Week, presenting a curated roster of established and emerging brands from over 15 different product categories including furniture, textiles, lighting, bathrooms, kitchens and accessories.
The fourth edition of the fair will bring together over 100 brands from 30 countries, allowing visitors to 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.
Re-affirming Downtown Design’s position as a fair of discovery, the popular Destination section of Downtown Design, a unique alliance of international design weeks returns. Each participating Design Week presents three emerging design brands representing the spirit of the city to which they belong, this year being Addis Ababa, Barcelona, Beirut, Reykjavík and Taipei.
