Recognizing Thai Design Excellence
The Design Excellence Award (DEmark) was established in 2008 in order to give recognition to outstanding product design, presented annually by the Prime Minister under the auspices of Thailand Institute of Design and Promotion under the Department of International Trade Promotion. The winning product receives the DEmark logo for outstanding design, promoting designed-in-Thailand products to the international market.
To foster widespread acclaim and recognition, judges for the DEmark awards are drawn from experts in the DITP, the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), and the Japan Institute of Design Promotion (JDP). Learn more about award registration here.
Bangkok Design Week
Bangkok Design Week (BKKDW) is the highlight of any events calendar in Bangkok, drawing an estimated number of 400,000 visitors at home and abroad each year. The annual event is organized by the Creative Economy Agency (Public Organization) or CEA, in partnership with over 60 state agencies, public organizations, academia and international institutions, as well as 2,000 designers and creative businesses.
In many ways, BKKDW is a growth engine for Thailand’s creative industries, showcasing creative business and designs, stimulating competitiveness, providing a local and foreign business networking opportunity, and generating an economic momentum to downstream businesses.
