Helsinki has been selected as Beijing Design Week’s Guest City in 2020. Helsinki will organise diverse events in Beijing over three weeks to present Helsinki as a design city.
Beijing Design Week 2020, held from 22 September to 7 October 2020, is the largest and most notable design festival in Asia. The festival attracts more than five million visitors each year. Helsinki’s programme in Beijing will be drawn up by Luovi Productions Oy, best known for Helsinki Design Week.
Helsinki’s goal is to present the city’s design expertise with the help of a novel concept, rather than with traditional exhibitions. The design story is told through three main themes at Beijing Design Week. Innovations in wellbeing, urban development and education will be used to present how Helsinki uses design to create a better everyday life for citizens.
