SAVE the DATE: MCBW 2022

14. May 2022 – 22. May 2022
09:00 – 21:00

The MUNICH CREATIVE BUSINESS WEEK (MCBW) 2022, Germany's largest design event, is postponed and will take place from May 14 to 22.will take place from March 5 to 13 2022. It is an international showcase for the Bavarian creative and design industry.

As a platform, the MCBW grants companies and designers from all disciplines the opportunity to present themselves to the professional world and the design-savvy public in Munich and the surrounding area over a period of nine days in a variety of event formats, such as exhibitions, lectures, talks, panel discussions, etc.

Under the leitmotif Design connects and the two program areas, CREATE BUSINESS! for the trade audience and DESIGN SCHAU! for the design-savvy public, inspiring design experiences are created, know-how is shared, trends and the latest innovations are discussed, and contacts are forged in order to fully immerse oneself in the world of design.

In doing so, MCBW underlines its concept- and content-based orientation with changing main themes along the major trends and questions that move today's society. Underlying all the current issues and topics such as climate change, sustainability, equal rights for all, social responsibility and collaboration, however, is also a strong hankering for lightness, to be optimistic, courageous and self-confident in doing the right things at exactly the right time. The yearning for a world in balance has become the driver for renewal. Design mediates between surging desires, realities and disciplines; it inquires, creates processes, structures and materials; it generates ideas, shape and meaning.

We believe that the time for the creative economy is now. Hence the 2022 MCBW theme of the year: Moving horizons

With the MCBW 2022, we seek to gaze at the horizon and beyond, to expand and move horizons, to question old horizons and create new ones, while showing how designers can satiate these cravings. Let's discover new horizons together! Welcome to the MCBW 2022!

The MCBW is organised by bayern design GmbH and sponsored by the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy as well as the City of Munich.
