Bangkok Design Week 2019 (BKKDW 2019), is being organized through January 26 – February 3, 2019 under the theme “Fusing Forward” to reflect Bangkok’s potential as a gathering place for creatives and producers, who work to combine knowledge from various disciplines locally and internationally, new and old, to create products and services for commercial purposes and a better quality of life.
Five key activities will be held in different parts of Bangkok, including Charoenkrung, Klong San, Sukhumvit, and Rama I:
• Showcase & Exhibition
A showcase and an exhibition of prototypes and products which reflect the potential of designers and creative businesses in Bangkok and other cities around the world.
• Talk & Workshop

• Creative District Project
A project to promote Charoenkrung as a Creative District, in support of both commercial activities and community wellbeing, acting as a prototype for creative area development which leads to practical use. Examples include the addition of green space, an adaptive reuse of unused space, an improvement of traffic flow in the Charoenkrung area, and tours.
• Event & Program
