First of all, for the people you don’t know what is NYCxDESIGN (yet!!!), we can tell you that is a New York City’s annual celebration of design that attracts hundreds of thousands of attendees and designers from the whole globe.
Taking place each May the event celebrates a world of design and showcases over a dozen design disciplines through exhibitions, installations, trade shows, panels, product launches, open studios, and much more.
Brought to life by New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) in conjunction with a steering committee of leading members of New York City’s design community, NYCxDESIGN highlights the unique creative, cultural, educational, and economic opportunities in New York City.
The NYCEDC chose SANDOW for the 2020 edition. SANDOW’s selection, according to NYCEDC President and CEO James Patchett, reflected the media company’s strong portfolio of design-forward brands and innovative content.
“We are very proud of the remarkable success NYCxDESIGN has had in just seven short years,” said Patchett. “NYCEDC is thrilled to be partnering with SANDOW to further elevate NYCxDESIGN, and we look forward to seeing their vision brought to life in 2020 and beyond.”
In his remarks, Adam Sandow, SANDOW’s Chairman, and CEO gave a hint of what’s in store for NYCxDESIGN’s future. “Our goal is nothing short of creating the most engaging, expansive, and inclusive design platform in the world,” said Sandow. “We look forward to working collaboratively with businesses, organizations, and institutions across the city to accomplish great success and continue to make New York the center of design.”
Launched in 2013, the NYCxDESIGN is a collaboration between New York City Economic Development Corporation, City agencies, the Mayor’s Office, City Council, and a steering committee composed of some of the City’s most renowned design institutions, retailers, manufacturers, entrepreneurs, curators, educators, editors and—of course—designers.
And, like design itself, NYCxDESIGN is everywhere, with events taking place across the city’s five boroughs. Announce more than a dozen new programs, design districts, and exhibitions planned for the citywide event this year block your agenda from May 10-22!
