Founded by the municipal government of Guangzhou in 2006, the annual Guangzhou Design Week (GZDW) is the first domestic event in China and with 10 years of growth has become the largest. Endorsed and promoted by the International Federation of Interior Architects / Designers (IFI) since 2007, the GZDW serves as a multi-functional platform – to integrate design and innovation into business opportunities. The event attracts numerous distinguished designers, materials enterprises and other design industry related companies to participate in. GZDW is the first annual international design and brands expo in China since 2006. With more than 13-year operating history, GZDW has become one of the largest and most influential annual commercial activities in the Chinese design industry. The expo brings into lime light the significance and value of products and services related to designing industry. Professionals from all over the world related to this sector will attend the event, they will get a scope to share their expertise with the interested attendees in this expo.

Some highlights:

  1. Given the current Covid-19 situation, many foreign participants may not be able to make it physically. However, the fair is still planned for offline format and it really depends on the pandemic situation eventually.
  2. Participation fees are to be advised.
  3. Something different this year and notable to highlight, is the ‘Design Academy’:

“Design Academy” is a global design knowledge and experience sharing program to usher and encourage Chinese designers to experience the unique design styles and ethics of each country around the world via various international study tours. The mission of the program is to advance the growth of design industry and community. One big difference as compared to past years is that the “Academy” will be held online due to the current travel restrictions. And the organiser would like to invite related SG companies in the design industry to do a sharing session via livestreaming. Please refer to the invitation letter for more details.
