Downtown Design is held under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairperson of Dubai Culture & Arts Authority.
Downtown Design is the Middle East’s leading design fair for original and high-quality design, showcasing leading international and regional brands.
A commercial highlight of Dubai Design Week, the region’s largest creative festival, every year in November Downtown Design brings together design professionals and enthusiasts from the Middle East, Africa and South Asia to discover, source, commission and purchase the latest in contemporary design from around the world.
Complemented with extensive collateral activations that include a dedicated B2B platform, a talks programme featuring global industry experts, conceptual exhibitions by leading designers and bespoke networking events, Downtown Design also presents country pavilions and Downtown Editions, the fair's boutique showcase for limited-edition design with a spotlight on designers from the Middle East.
The fair’s latest edition (2019) featured 200 design brands and hosted 19,000 visitors that included the region’s top-tier buyers; from principal architects and interior designers to the design directors of hotel groups and developers alongside HNW private clients.

Continuing to support the objectives of brands and buyers through challenging times, in 2020 Downtown Design presented a hybrid programme.
