Visitors were met with an extremely wide range of exhibitions, lectures, and forums involving famous designers, journalists, and curators. This not only created an efficient communication platform positioned to lead the development of new trends but also provided important networking opportunities, facilitating fruitful exchanges and forging valuable collaborations.
