In its milestone 10th anniversary edition this year, Downtown Design took place 8-11 November at the Waterfront Terrace in Dubai Design District (d3).

The anchor event of Dubai Design Week, the annual fair brings together thought leaders and decision-makers of the global design stage and hosts a line-up of creative exhibits, installations, keynotes & panel discussions, alongside creative experiences and industry events, every November.

Showcasing international and regional brands, manufacturers and designers, Downtown Design is the Middle East's leading fair for contemporary and high-quality design, and is free to attend for B2B and B2C visitors looking to discover, buy or commission design pieces, latest collections, innovative solutions and limited-edition design from the region and around the world.

In response to the devastating events occurring in Gaza, visitors to Downtown Design were asked to pay an entrance fee of AED 25. The total funds raised will be matched by the Art Dubai Group and donated to Emirates Red Crescent to support the many innocent civilians affected by this tragedy.
