Think – Collaborate – Create: Melbourne’s Business of Design Week Hong Kong
The largest-ever international presentation of Victorian design will be showcased at Asia’s premier design event, Hong Kong Business of Design Week (BODW) in December 2018.
Melbourne is the event’s first Southern Hemisphere Partner City and follows Italy’s 2017 showcase as Partner Country.
From 3 to 8 December 2018, BoDW will offer an invaluable platform for the Victorian design community to exchange ideas, network and explore new business and trade opportunities with international design leaders and influential business figures.
Under the theme “Think · Collaborate · Create”, Melbourne’s program involves over 170 designers, design organisations and institutions.
Victoria’s Minister for Creative Industries, Martin Foley said Melbourne’s significant strengths in design will come to life in Hong Kong providing opportunities for both established names and rising talent.
“From globally recognised success stories to our rising new design talents, Victoria has so much to be proud of and this program represents our largest ever design-focused international trade mission,” said Minister Foley.
“This is an incredible platform to showcase Melbourne’s design strengths to an audience of potential collaborators and trade partners and we are proud to be backing our designers to take on the world,” he said.
