d3’s Design Quarter has become a venue of choice for the event through convening creatives, industry professionals and design enthusiasts from all over the world for the 4th year in a row, and further reinforcing d3’s position as the leading hub for art and design in the region.
Speaking about the significance of hosting Dubai Design Week for the fourth year running, Mohammad Saeed Al Shehhi, Chief Executive Officer, Dubai Design District, said, "d3 is delighted to be partnering once again with Dubai Design Week in hosting the 4th edition at the Design Quarter.
This event is a wonderful celebration of design and serves as a meeting point for creatives and design professionals from the region and internationally.
This year, d3’s presence will be stronger than ever with a showcase of the final chapter of the ‘UAE Design Stories’ exhibition, which celebrates Emirati culture through various design disciplines.
