Valencia Disseny Week
Published on April 1, 2018
Valencia Disseny Week (VDW) is a major event, replete with design-related activities that are carried out in Valencia over a few days to coincide with the Feria Hábitat Valencia Trade Fair.
The Association of Designers of the Region of Valencia (ADCV) is organising Valencia Disseny Week for the fourth year running, with the aim of publicising all the events being hosted in the city of Valencia. Its aim is to promote design culture to a wide range of target audiences through various activities, whilst simultaneously supporting all those involved.
The successful turnout of visitors in previous years backs the Valencian community’s social and cultural interest in design. The aim of this year’s event is to strengthen this trend and ensure its growth year on year. The Association of Designers of the Region of Valencia (ADCV) motivates the different parties involved in Valencia Design Week to continue working and to join forces to invigorate one of the key sectors for economy, society and business competitiveness.
Valencia is a key city for a “Design Week” given its long-standing tradition and know-how in the world of design, its involvement in the business sector and its industrial potential. And of course, design is a crucial business strategy that helps companies to be competitive in the international market. The aim of Valencia Design Week is to promote this idea, bringing the business and design sectors closer together.
During the design week, Valencia will become one of the leading international capitals for design, showcasing exhibitions, awards, showrooms, presentations, inaugurations, conferences, talks, workshops and more. Last year’s Valencia Design Week encompassed over 100 activities. The objectives of Valencia Design Week:
– Promoting Valencian design, as well as welcoming national and international design.
– Raising awareness and promoting design culture, bringing it closer to society.
– Conveying to the business sector that design is an effective tool for industrial improvement and economic sustainability.
The organisation of Valencia Disseny Week, unlike other years, is made without government subsidies, turning into an economically sustainable event.
