Here too, all award-winning entries will be shown, in a digital format, in a large exhibition on 500 sqm of floor space. Again, a limited number of companies will have the opportunity of presenting their award-winning design in the form of real products. Hangzhou is the capital and hence the political, scientific and cultural center of Zhejiang province. With its seven million inhabitants, this urban center is only a 45-minute train ride away from Shanghai. Hangzhou is one of China's major cultural and tourist destinations.
The latest award-winning entries will be shown in a digital exhibition on 500 sqm of floor space. For a limited number of companies, there is the additional option of presenting their award-winning design in the form of real products. With 35 million tourists annually, Hainan is one of the top destinations and a very attractive location. This international exhibition provides a unique opportunity to access new markets and target groups.
All award-winning entries from one year will be presented - either live or digitally - at the iF design exhibition Hannover, which will run in parallel to CeBIT at the Hanover exhibition center. CeBIT is well known for drawing a large international crowd of decision makers. With this linking of the iF design exhibition to CeBIT - both in terms of space and time - we can guarantee the maximum attention from those target groups that are of crucial importance to you as potential clients and project owners.
China's economic development has shifted from the industrial age into the information age, i.e., the service industry. Presently, China's economy is gradually moving from the "Made in China" to "Created in China".
China International Creative Design Week (CICDW) will be an exchange of international design trends and ideas, demonstrating China's creative achievements, promoting the development of the creative design industry, and to achieve a platform of linked creativity and value - thus establishing a new world order of creativity and design, reflecting its higher value, and propelling its healthy development forward.
China International Creative Design Exhibition is a part event of CICDW.
The 2011 Taipei World Design Expo is the largest design exhibition in Taiwan. It will take place at the same time as the 2011 IDA Congress. This exhibition focuses on graphic and interior design as well as on art and architecture. Exhibitors come from over 40 countries and include design institutions, companies and universities. More than one million visitors are expected this year.
Design has traditionally played a major role in Korea. During the last few years, this role has become even more important with regard to issues such as sustainability and innovation. This is mirrored in the DESIGN KOREA exhibition, which has become one of the most recognized exhibitions in Asia since its inception in 2003. In the last few years, each show had more than 120,000 visitors.
In October 2011, DESIGN KOREA will again take place at the COEX Convention and Exhibition Center in the center of Seoul. This year, 5 international design institutions have been invited to participate in the 'World Best Design Zone'. Here, iF will represent the European continent.
