Bangladesh goes to Dutch Design Week (DDW)
For the first-time in Europe, Bangladeshi manufacturers and entrepreneurs will be presented at the prestigious #DDW2022 in Eindhoven, Netherlands.
Every year, the hundreds of designers, innovators converge at the largest design event in Northern Europe where emerging thinking or trends in design, innovation, new materials, sustainability, concepts are showcased to entrepreneurs from Europe and far beyond.
As Europe move towards Circular Economy and driven by EU Green Deal, consumers are increasingly sensitive towards goods with least Carbon footprint and are demanding newer kind of goods. The transforming European landscape thus promises opportunities for Bangladeshi manufacturers to invest in “design thinking” and secure greater competitiveness and productivity, especially as Bangladesh emerges as a Middle Income Country (MIC).
Bangladesh Embassy, partnering with Eindhoven International Project office (EIPO) of Brainport, is organizing a day-long event on 27th October 2022 to pitch Bangladesh. It was last week announced as part of the official schedule of the Design Week <https://ddw.nl/en/programme/8831/bangladesh-at-ddw-2022>.
The event aims to facilitate match-making between some of the leading, innovative Bangladeshi manufacturers with interested Dutch entrepreneurs and designers. Bangladeshi participants will also visit the leading Dutch Design Academy in understanding the need and scope of ‘design’ in manufacturing. Leading Bangladeshi companies namely APEX Footwear, ACI, Nourish, Walton will join the event.
The Bangladeshi entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to attend a guided tour on 26th October in the Stijp-S area of the DDW which is one of the main attraction-places for visitors.
