“We have seen the growth of SDW over the last 6 years, and are inspired by its impact on the youth and the design industry as a whole,” Banque Saudi Fransi (BSF), which is a strategic partner to Saudi Design Week, said in a statement.
Also joining as partners are Mercedes Benz and the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (Ithra), commenting on the partnership was Ithra’s head of programs Abdullah Al-Rashid, who said: “Ithra’s participation in Saudi Design Week as a strategic partner falls under the center’s commitment to support Saudi talent and to showcase creative content across local and global platforms.”
“Saudi Design Week provides visitors with the opportunity to experience the societal benefit of design in an innovative and interactive way. The event, similar to Ithra, additionally supports in contributing toward bolstering the Kingdom’s knowledge-based economy as well as its social and cultural diversification per Vision 2030 vision.” He added.
We can’t wait to see the SDW showcase the artistic and innovative creations of participants, in addition to highlighting the positive impact that creative designs leave on society by helping create happiness.
