In 2008, UNESCO designated Shenzhen a “City of Design”. The Cities of Design sub-Network now has 22 members from all around the world, which engage in frequent communication and cooperation. Following the announcement by the Design Week secretariat of the first Design Week to be held in Shenzhen, interest has been expressed by many Cities of Design, including Montreal, Turin, Singapore, Detroit, Shanghai, Beijing, Saint-Etienne, Nagoya, Bilbao, Dundee, and Puebla. These member Cities of Design have confirmed that they will be sending representatives to the event, along with more than a hundred  projects for the exhibition. We believe that Shenzhen Design Week will enhance contact between and collaboration among the Cities of Design, and be an important platform on which the Cities can showcase their design strengths and the talent of their designers.
