Beijing Design Week

Launched with a pilot effort in 2009, Beijing Design Week (BJDW) is a citywide event co-hosted by the Beijing Municipal Government, the Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Science and Technology, to nurture a culture of design in a Chinese context. With seven key sections - Opening Ceremony, Design Awards/Design Market/Design Talent, Smart City, Design Hop, Guest City - BJDW features hundreds of international exhibitions, public events and trading platforms as the leading design event in the PRC. While offering an expansive overview of China's transforming design landscape, it serves as a laboratory for innovative perspectives that, from industry to academia, inspire and shape contemporary design discourse and practice.
