On October 7, the main events of the 2023 Beijing Design Week were concluded.
During the 2023 Beijing Design Week, more than 1,000 creative design activities were held at more than 70 venues in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei, covering a total area of approximately 3.5 million square meters, attracting more than 6,000 designers and more than 1,500 design brands and institutions from over 50 countries and regions to participate in. Meanwhile, the events received more than 3.5 million visitors at home and abroad, with an additional 80 million viewers participating in through online live streaming.
At the 2nd China Aerospace Science Fiction Season, one of the major activities of the Design Week, the Aerospace Science and Technology Industry Collaborative Innovation Center showcased publicly dozens of key and core technologies in the field of aerospace to the design industry, with a view to facilitating the transformation and cooperation, which is an important step towards key and core technology innovation for the Design Week. The trailer for Macbeth, China's first XR digital drama, was also unveiled at the 2023 Taihu International Stage Art Forum, an important forum of the Design Week. With the help of extended reality technology, the traditional stage can provide the audience with a greater sense of depth with extra height and scale.
The international design cooperation program for 2024 has also been initiated. The Organizing Committee of the Design Week has signed a cooperation agreement with the French Professional Fine Craft Federation (Ateliers d'Art de France), and will organize the "Revelations China" – China International Expo for Craft Innovation in Beijing in 2024. Additionally, an agreement has been reached with the Milan Children's Design Week to carry out in-depth cooperation in 2024.
