The fair is a key event of the region’s most important creative festival, the annually anticipated event with an extensive lineup of activities taking place in Dubai Design District (d3) and across the city.
Strategically located in the main hub of the fast-paced Gulf, Downtown Design in November offers direct access into the wider Middle East, North Africa and South Asia markets, with a US$ 18 Billion estimated worth of the GCC interiors marketing in 2022; a once a year opportunity to build brand awareness, generate commercial leads and enter new networks.
The Forum at Downtown Design will host a series of compelling live interviews and discussions between leading regional and international architects, interior and product designers on each afternoon of the fair.
Staged in an amphitheatre specially designed to promote interaction and engagement by ema, topics will range from changing industry dynamics, behaviours and opportunities to how architecture and design can truly embody authenticity and place, and from implementing sustainability in the real world with real clients to authentic placemaking and the future of Middle Eastern cities.
