Downtown Design is the leading design fair in the Middle East and a catalyst for growth in the region’s creative scene.

The anchor event of Dubai Design Week, Downtown Design hosts both internationally renowned design brands and manufacturers alongside individual designers, collectives and studios from around the globe, with a spotlight on the region.

Dedicated to contemporary and high-quality design, the fair showcases the latest collections, innovative products and design solutions, complemented by a line-up of creative concepts and installations, experiences and industry events.

The fair remains the annual point of connection, fostering pertinent relationships in a sought-after and fast-growing market, bringing together thought leaders and decision-makers of the global design stage, every November.

Downtown Design consistently produces a dynamic environment where design meets opportunity, and attracts leading design professionals and industry decision-makers from the region, alongside top-tier public visitors, reaffirming Dubai’s position as the design capital of the Middle East.

Owned and managed by the Art Dubai Group and staged in strategic partnership with Dubai Design District (d3), a member of TECOM Group PJSC, and supported by Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, Downtown Design takes place on the d3 Waterfront in Dubai Design District (d3).
