Dubai Design Week returns for its eighth season from 8 - 13 November 2022, providing individuals and companies with a platform to showcase their design experience and thinking by ways of installations, exhibitions, and experiential mediums. Curated in strategic partnership with Dubai Design District (d3), a member of TECOM Group PJSC, and supported by Dubai Culture, the annual event is one of the region’s most significant cultural occasions with a line-up of programming demonstrating Dubai’s commitment to design. The fair is scheduled to take place at d3, a regional hub for art, design fashion, and architecture. This year's programming will focus on designing for a sustainable future that will be integrated across the week’s activities in a range of disciplines including architecture, product design, interiors, and multimedia by international and regional designers.

“We are proud to present the eighth edition of Dubai Design Week, which is set to be – once again – a very exciting highlight of Dubai’s autumn calendar. We look forward to bringing the design and creative community together to engage, connect and be inspired by the ideas, talents and artisans presented across installations, exhibitions, talks, workshops, the Downtown Design fair and the market.  In addition, we look forward to giving incredible talent from the UAE, region and wider world a platform for their work to be showcased and celebrated.  We at Dubai Design District are deeply committed to rethinking the regular, empowering talent and being an ever-growing ecosystem for creative thinkers. We look forward – with this edition of Dubai Design Week – to fortifying Dubai’s status as a UNESCO Creative City of Design and further growing the profile of the creative industries in our city." - Khadija Al Bastaki, Vice President of d3
