Throughout the event, networking and discussion of ideas and projects will be constant, and there are some specific events for this to happen, usually over some drinks and while listening to good music or watching artistic installations and audiovisual contents.
The conferences are probably the main part of this Design Week, being already a global event of creativity, business and education, with the goal of creating new value to the fields of branding, design, architecture, advertising, fashion, new media, film, culture, and many more. Belgrade Design Week is open until the 9th, so it’s still good to go!
