Barcelona Design Week
At the top of the agenda for fans of design, creativity, and innovation, and one of the most important Design Weeks on the international calendar, this event attracts the main players in design from across the globe.
The 14th Annual Barcelona Design Week arrives this year with an extensive program of activities including conferences and roundtables, documentaries and exhibitions, presentations, open houses, award ceremonies, workshops, and a fabulous kick-off party. Throughout the event, Barcelona will host numerous companies, designers, entrepreneurs, and other agents in the sectors of design, innovation, and creativity, who participate in the event as a way to demonstrate to the general public the importance of design, the key role it plays in innovation, and the myriad ways in which it fits in to promoting sustainability and improving quality of life.
With a similar goal in mind, the programming of Barcelona Design Week extends beyond the confines of Disseny Hub Barcelona, its primary venue, in order to offer a wide variety of parallel events and activities hosted throughout different parts of the city, and organized by the primary actors in the local design circuit, including professionals, companies, design schools, and other key players.
Opening up to the city like this is possible thanks to the collaboration between the two major design centers in the city: the Barcelona Design Center and FAD (Fostering Art and Design). Their generative alliance puts the focus on talent, recognition of excellence, and the unique culture of design in the city, which for 8 days becomes the world capital of design.
