Great interest in upcoming red dot exhibition in Xiamen

The China International Design Business Week (CIDBW) in Xiamen is the first international high-standard design exhibition held in the economic zone on the west coast of the Taiwan Strait. The expectations and thus the interest in the event are very high as the press conference of “China International Design Business Week - red dot in Xiamen” – which was held Beijing in the afternoon of 8 August 2012 – impressively showed.

CIDBW 2012 is confirmed to be held at Xiamen International Conference and Exhibition Center from 8 till 12 September 2012. The major events are the showcasing & networking as well as the red dot design forum on 10 September. The networking mechanism will promote the cooperation between domestic companies and design organisations.

During the press conference, Yao Muzhong, deputy director of Xiamen Municipal Bureau of Commerce, introduced that the cooperation with red dot stems from a visit of several enterprises led by Xiamen Municipal Government and Xiamen Municipal Bureau of Commerce. They visited the UNESCO world cultural heritage Zeche Zollverein in Essen, Germany, where the red dot design museum is located. The entrepreneurs’ expectation for good and sustainable design happened to coincide with red dot’s development in Chinese market. “Because of the participation of red dot, scores of international design organisations join in this Design Business Week, thus Chinese enterprises can find internationally renowned designers.”

The China International Design Business Week will showcase more than 100 products that have been awarded the red dot within the last two years and over 1,000 excellent design works which were realised home and abroad.
