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.
