Dubai to be Guest City at Beijing Design Week

Dubai will participate in Beijing Design Week (BJDW) as the ‘Guest City’ for the upcoming 2015 edition to be held from September 23 until October 7 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 emirate’s growing reputation as a global meeting point for international art and design communities.
The story of Dubai’s development and dynamic cultural scene was recently highlighted at Dubai Week in China, a seven-day event held in Beijing in May this year, and is further reinforced by the launch of Dubai Design Week in late October 2015.
