Following a successful return with an in-person event in 2021, this year’s dates for the region’s leading fair for high-quality and original design have been announced; the fair will take place from 9-12 November at its purpose-built venue on the d3 waterfront in Dubai Design District (d3).

The commercial highlight of the region’s most important creative festival, Dubai Design Week, the fair will showcase the latest collections, innovative products and design solutions by exhibiting brands, manufacturers and designers from the region and around the world, complemented by a line-up of creative showcases, activations and industry events. 

The fair’s section dedicated to limited-edition and bespoke design, Downtown Editions will provide independent designers, collectives and studios a platform to access top-tier design professionals, HNWIs and relevant public visitors looking to discover, buy or commission handmade and small-scale manufactured works. 

Located in the main hub of the fast-paced Arabian Gulf, Downtown Design in November offers direct access into the wider Middle East, North Africa and South Asia markets and gives exhibitors the chance to build brand awareness, generate commercial leads and enter new networks. 

Last year’s edition of Downtown Design saw more than 25 countries represented at the fair, with 159 brands exhibiting their works and welcoming 17,500 visitors.
