“With the transformation of London’s industrial Royal Docks, it is a fitting location for China Design Week and this fascinating conference. The importance of design and our relationship with China cannot be overstated. There is huge potential for learning and collaboration, and it’s in this spirit that we welcome China Design Week.”
Munira Mirza, Deputy Mayor for Education and Culture of London

“China Design Week aims to be one of the highest profile design events between China and the UK.”
China Design Week 2015 UK-China Year Of Cultural Exchange Launch is a new annual international event - an exciting platform, which allows Chinese, British and non-Chinese designers and engineers to build on their mutual strengths, to devise creative and innovative solutions for better designs, products and services. In October 2015, on the occasion of China’s State visit to the UK and to mark the UK-China year of cultural exchange, a launch event, comprising both exhibition and conferences, will take place at Royal Albert Dock bringing together the best of the East and the West.

Even though China has become the world’s second largest economy and the world’s largest manufacturing base, the term ‘made in China’ still has negative connotations.

Transforming “Made in China” to “Created in China” is a key challenge for Chinese enterprises urgently in need of world-class creative design. What are the best methods, models and practices of designing? What is the value and the role of creativity in emerging markets? What are the contemporary ideas in design thinking? Are they appropriate in the Chinese context? What is “good design?”

China Design Week (CDW) aims to be one of the highest profile design events and an international creative influencer. The CDW objective is to further promote pragmatic exchanges and cooperation between the creative industries from both countries. The theme of CDW 2015 is “Creative China - Created in China and Created for China.”

CDW will be the first in the UK to explore the impact of economic expansion on Designs in China. It will reveal to UK and International audiences of astonishing vitality of China’s Twenty-First Century Design Culture.
