At the heart of the Downtown Design fair lies a thriving community of regional and international architects, interior designers and key decision makers, actively engaged in the region’s design industry

In addition, being a sister event of Art Dubai, the region’s leading contemporary art fair, Downtown Design enjoys the participation of the UAE’s largest database of High Net Worth Individuals who also attend the fair.

This year, the fair will host a roster of new audience programmes throughout the week, with activities and networking opportunities dedicated to specific visitor categories based on profile and interests, actively engaging both B2B and B2C audiences from the GCC and beyond.

In collaboration with Downtown Design, Architectural Digest Middle East will curate a series of tailored discovery tours of the fair to help visitors navigate the latest collections and innovative products, and meet the participating brands and emerging designers. AHEAD, the globally renowned awards for hospitality experience and design, together with Downtown Design, will host a programme of special activities for leading architects and designers actively working on hospitality projects in the region, alongside hotel owners, operators and developers.

These new programmes will complement Downtown Design’s unique Trade/Connect Programme, redesigned this year to include a suite of exclusive events featuring a line-up of opportunities to network with industry peers and new clients, engaging activations and product sourcing opportunities at the fair.
