Featuring such themes as constructing design capital, promoting smart city, developing design market, Beijing Design Week has established the important role of Beijing as a design capital in boosting the global network of creative cities. With seven sections, namely the opening ceremony, Beijing Design Awards, Beijing Design Fair, theme exhibitions, Beijing Design Forum, Beijing Design Forum, Guest City and Design Hop, Beijing Design Week is to lead the design trend and China and contribute to design consumption

To be held at China Millennium Monument on the evening of 26th September, the opening ceremony has invited famous designers from home and abroad, scholars, government officials etc. It include such parts as “The Road of Design”, “Award Ceremony”, “Beijing Design Award’s medal-inlaying ceremony”, “introduction and promotion of the main sections of Beijing Design Week 2013”. The opening ceremony aims to strengthen the communication between China and the world, promoting the international role of Chinese design, create opportunities for dialogues and resources sharing, encourage exchange and trading, as well as emphasize the significance of design capital in the construction of smart city and urban development in the world.


Beijing Design Week was initially launched together with International Design Alliance Congress 2009, which was the first to be held in China. It then becomes an annual event since 2011, not only helping to promote the cultural development of Beijing and its construction of “national cultural center” and “world-class city”, but also contributing to the Chinese capital’s application for the UNESCO title of “design capital”, which it earned in 2012. As a platform to present the overall strength of Beijing as a “design capital”, Beijing Design Week further establishes itself as a brand and stands as the only internationally recognized, A-level creativity activity in Chinese mainland, which is also included in the “global design map”; in 2013, Beijing Design Week puts much emphasis on “Beijing Design Fair”, integrating professional and social resources, supporting the development of design industry as well as Beijing’s construction of “design capital” and “smart city”.
