Exhibit your design at the Design Fair & Festival
After a period of hard work you come up with a great project/design. But that's only just the beginning. You have to start telling the whole world about your design. To get your design out there, you need to speak to people - especially those interested in your idea, partners or investors. The best way to do so and tell people about your project is through exhibiting, at least in our opinion.
Therefore we've partnered up with POTENTIALe, a great Art & Design event in Feldkirch, Austria. And let's already tell you some great news: the exhibiting space is free for students! That's really a great opportunity to present yourself and your design to a massive audience!
So, let us tell you a bit about POTENTIALe. This Fair & Festival focusses on communicating, networking and presentation in exchange with designers, future users and network partners. Many small and larger design labels have already implemented their product-designs at the fair & festival in Feldkirch, Austria. The next international edition will take place from 8 - 10 November and is expected to be visited by over 10,000 design interested and financially strong visitors (mostly of the surrounding countries Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and France).
POTENTIALe Fair & Festival stands for the close relationship between product and designer - with comprehensible production chains, consciously chosen materials and goods created in a fair process. The interdisciplinary orientation and the extension of the program with lectures, workshops, discussions and film make the event a versatile hotspot for design, art and photography. Lukas Stark, project manager: 'We see ourselves as a conscious sales fair and above all we are a platform for building relationships.' Therefore it's important knowing where your materials come from, to have a transparent (future) production chain and your project should come with a prototype.
So you would like to exhibit?
For example, you have developed a prototype that is not for sale yet and you're looking to partner up? Or you want to present your ideas and collect feedback? In many ways the POTENTIALe Fair & Festival is a great way of sharing your work with a great design-orientated audience. As mentioned earlier, the participation and exhibition space is free for students, so it's time to get you and your design out there!
