Most of Dubai Design Week’s programme is made up of partner events and activations, held both at the festival’s main hub at Dubai Design District (d3) and at locations across the city and the UAE. Organisations, companies and individuals take part by staging events that showcase products, services and ideas; collectively showcasing the city’s creativity and individually pursuing promotional opportunities as well as further objectives.

The annual event attracts a growing and varied audience; from industry professionals to public visitors, including students, press, influencers and design enthusiasts, who attend events, experiences, exhibitions, installations, performances, talks and workshops that reflect Dubai’s wide variety of design disciplines and interests. In 2018, the programme was made up of 250 events by 130 participating organisations and individual designers showcasing talent from Dubai, the UAE, the wider region and around the world.
