Dubai Design Week has become the number one design event in the Middle East and is growing more and more annually. This year the program is more diverse than all previous years. I strongly advise you to make use of the large number of interesting talks and workshops. If you can, try to visit the Louvre in Abu Dhabi which will be officially opening November 11, 2017.
As for Dubai Design Week, it is a diverse 6-day program of exhibitions, installations, talks, educational workshops and more which will allow visitors the opportunity to discover and engage with design. The free-to-attend program will serve as a rich introduction to the design scene in the UAE, and build on the many events and exhibitions happening throughout the week and beyond.
I will list below some of my favourite programs, to check out the rest of the list go to Dubai Design Week website.

Following the success of the 2015 edition – attended by 310,840 visitors – the 2016 edition will feature the Salone Internazionale del Mobile along with the International Furnishing Accessories Exhibition, and more than 1,300 exhibitors ranged over 150,000 square metres, split into Classic and Design sections, making for a visitor-friendly floor plan and a 360° insight into the world of furniture and furnishing accessories.
