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 and hosting 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.

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 the “Trade Connect” programme of dedicated B2B meetings, receptions and briefings; 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.

Returning to its purpose-built venue on the waterfront terrace in Dubai Design District (d3), Downtown Design 2021 will take place on the 8-12 November, within weeks of the opening of the Expo 2020 Dubai.

For more information or to enquire about participation, please write to info@downtowndesign.com; a member of the team will be in touch soon.
