Asia’s premier annual event on design, innovation and brands since 2002, Business of Design Week (BODW) organised by Hong Kong Design Centre brings some of the world’s most outstanding design masters and influential business figures to Hong Kong. It provides a valuable platform for business and creative leaders to exchange ideas, network, and explore new business opportunities.
Taking the theme of ‘Think ∙ Collaborate ∙ Create’ BODW 2018 will team up with Melbourne – the world’s most liveable city for seven consecutive years (2011 – 2017) according to The Economist Intelligence Unit – and other countries and economies to explore design and innovation in branding, space, communication, product and culture, with new conference streams on Digital & Design, Greater Bay Area & Design and more.
Debuting this year is the BODW City Programme, a creative community activation programme featuring exciting festivals and happenings in Wan Chai and other districts in Hong Kong to engage the public. As an extension of the main BODW event, it fosters collaboration between local designers, businesses and brands, and will staged annually from November to January.
Over the years, BODW grows rapidly into an annual flagship event of HKDC, and is increasingly recognised as an international platform to celebrate, promote and enhance the value of design.
