THE SIXTH EDITION OF THE DESIGNMENA SUMMIT TAKES PLACE ON DECEMBER 5, 2018, AT THE GROSVENOR HOUSE IN DUBAI, BRINGING TOGETHER MORE THAN 200 SENIOR ARCHITECTS AND COMMERCIAL INTERIOR DESIGNERS FROM THE REGION'S MOST INFLUENTIAL FIRMS
Listen to industry experts, such as Driss Kettani, Ayah Al Bitar and Duncan Denley at this year’s symposium.
The highly anticipated designMENA Summit offers many opportunities for industry professionals to network and exchange knowledge. While suppliers and manufactur-ers look to market their latest prod-uct ranges and discuss upcoming trends with visitors, industry lead-ers will take to the stage in panel discussions and project presenta-tions for the day-long conference. While last year's summit line up featured influential architects and designers, including Korean architect Minsuk Cho, ZHA's head of region Tariq Khayyat, and Emirati architect Ahmed Bukhash, this year's keynote speakers include David Raffoul and Nicolas Mous-sallem, founders of david/nicolas, and Driss Kettani, founder of Driss Kettani Architecte. Presentations will be held by Chris Jones, partner at io Design, Ayah Al Bitar, founder of Ayah Al Bitar Design House, and Lee Sweetman, director of dpa lighting consultants. From Emkay Interiors to iGuzzini, our sponsors' diverse backgrounds and offerings, bolsters the event's dynamic structure. Held on December 5, 2018, this year's designMENA Summit promises to be the largest yet, as it prepares to welcome its highest number of confirmed delegates in the conference's history — a record number of 238 attendees, expected to increase over the coming weeks.
