Dubai to be Guest City at Beijing Design Week
31 July, 2015
Dubai will participate in Beijing Design Week (BJDW) as the ‘Guest City’ for the upcoming 2015 edition to be held from 23 September until 7 October in the Chinese capital. The Dubai Design Week and Beijing Design Week Organising Committee announced that this was as part of a reciprocal agreement to foster further cultural exchange. And BJDW will be welcomed as the ‘guest international design week’ at the inaugural Dubai Design Week in October this year. This is the first time a city from the Middle East has been recognised as the ‘Guest City’ at BJDW. This reflects the emirate’s growing reputation as a global meeting point for international art and design communities.
