Due to a more international orientation and a stronger presence in public space, Designmonat Graz 2018 guaranteed a noted performance beyond the borders of the UNESCO City of Design Graz which once more became the “melting pot” of the creative industries.

The festival reflected the excellent networking of the city with all parts of the world and the exchange within the creative community, which was manifested through design contributions from the Chinese 10-million-inhabitant metropolis Wuhan as well as from the Netherlands, Montreal and Mexico in manifold showcases and exhibitions at Joanneumsviertel and designforum Steiermark.

With the participation of 358 companies and design labels from more than 30 nations with a total of 100,000 visitors, we are more than happy.
