Downtown Design is held under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairperson of Dubai Culture & Arts Authority.

Taking place 9-12 November, Downtown Design is the Middle East's leading fair for contemporary and high-quality design, showcasing international and regional exhibiting brands, manufacturers and designers.

The commercial highlight of Dubai Design Week, the region’s most important creative festival, Downtown Design is the annual destination for contemporary design, attracting leading design professionals and industry decision makers from the Middle East, Africa, South Asia and beyond, alongside top-tier public visitors, and reaffirming Dubai’s position as the design capital of the Middle East.

The fair brings together thought leaders and decision makers of the global design stage alongside showcases of the latest collections, innovative products and design solutions from the region and around the world, complemented by a line-up of creative exhibits, activations and industry events.

A number of changes will be implemented this year, such as zero-waste guidelines and new dedicated audience programmes, but the fair will remain a boutique event catering to both the industry and to consumers.

Enhanced by the region’s booming real estate market as well as the many hospitality projects in the pipeline, the fair will present a tight selection of the latest in contemporary design, with an emphasis on commercial opportunity and enhanced brand in the market, while accessing the most relevant audiences.

Staged in strategic partnership with Dubai Design District (d3) and supported by Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, Downtown Design takes place on the d3 Waterfront in Dubai Design District
