The Middle East’s largest celebration of original, high-quality design. Downtown Design is where design meets commercial opportunity in the one of the world’s most dynamic and progressive cities.
Downtown Design is the Middle East’s leading platform for the region’s trade professionals to discover high quality, original design.
The fair’s unique approach enlists an award-winning architect each year to masterplan the venue, this year around the theme of Liveable Cities. Set on the waterfront overlooking Dubai Creek, there are six large-scale installations, landscaped indoor gardens, bespoke café concepts and pop-up retail, creating an engaging and dynamic experience.
The sixth edition of the fair will present over 175 contemporary international design brands alongside 40 regional designers, the largest ever curation of Middle Eastern talent.
This year also sees the launch of Editions, a showcase of limited edition design from individual designers, studios and design collectives.
Alongside the exhibition, a wide programme of talks and workshops at The Forum are curated to attract industry professionals and feature headline speakers from around the world.
