Beijing Design Week

Beijing Design Week 2013 : Time and Location
Time: 26th September - 3rd October

A Brief Introduction

Ever since 2011, the event decides the event’s name as “Beijing Design Week + the year”. For example, the event for this year is named “Beijing Design Week 2013”, which will last from September 26 to October 3, 2013. It includes seven main sections, namely opening ceremony, Beijing Design Awards, Beijing Design Fair, Theme Exhibitions, Beijing Design Forum, Guest City and Design Hop.

Background

Beijing Design Week was initially launched together with International Design Alliance Congress 2009, which was the first to be held in China. It then becomes an annual event since 2011, not only helping to promote the cultural development of Beijing and its construction of “national cultural center” and “world-class city”, but also contributing to the Chinese capital’s application for the UNESCO title of “design capital”, which it earned in 2012. As a platform to present the overall strength of Beijing as a “design capital”, Beijing Design Week further establishes itself as a brand and stands as the only internationally recognized, A-level creativity activity in Chinese mainland, which is also included in the “global design map”; in 2013, Beijing Design Week puts much emphasis on “Beijing Design Fair”, integrating professional and social resources, supporting the development of design industry as well as Beijing’s construction of “design capital” and “smart city”.
