red dot continues cooperation with the DMI

With its initiatives, seminars and training programmes, the Design Management Institute (DMI) is one of the most important professional organisations for design management. It connects product design with business, culture and consumers through sophisticated communications. Thus, a widespread network has been developed in which designers, experts, scientists and leaders from different economic branches exchange their knowledge.

In 2010, red dot and the DMI started a cooperation which will now be continued. Prof. Dr. Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of red dot, said: “This year, we cooperate again with the DMI, one of the most important institutions in design management. Thus, we can exclusively offer the participants in the “red dot award: product design 2012” special conditions for becoming part of this community which provides its members with extra services.”

All participants in the “red dot award: product design 2012” have the opportunity to join the DMI and receive an 25% discount on the annual membership fee for all DMI Professional Membership categories. The membership at a reduced rate offers various advantages: From the access to the institute’s broad online database with hundreds of articles, case studies and videos of DMI conferences to discounts and special privileges on the participation in conferences, workshops and seminars.

The continuous expansion of the conference programme on an international level followed as well as the periodical release of the internationally esteemed publication “Design Management Review”. Thus, the DMI has earned a reputation worldwide as a multifaceted resource, providing invaluable know-how, tools and training.
