The “Munich Creative Business Week” (MCBW) in Munich
Munich and Bavaria as a site for creative activities stand for premium entrepreneur-oriented connections between the design and the corporate sector. Organized by bayern design GmbH in the first quarter of every year, MUNICH CREATIVE BUSINESS WEEK (MCBW) is the largest design event in Germany and illustrates the potential: Close to 200 committed program partners create a cross-discipline platform for companies with an affinity for design, designers, design agencies and all other people interested in design. Following the motto “Design transforms”, the two program areas – CREATE BUSINESS! for experts and DESIGN SCHAU! for the public – engage more than 65,000 participants in substantial knowledge transfer and inspiring design experiences.
CREATE BUSINESS! – MCBW’S DIALOG AND NETWORK PLATFORM FOR DESIGN PROFESSIONALS
Design inspires innovation and stands for an active-creative, human implementation of change. With this in mind, MCBW DESIGN DIALOGS presents groundbreaking ideas, sustainable trends and new products in conferences, symposiums and workshops, at receptions and many other events. MCBW initiates business contacts, in-depth transfer of know-how and lively discussions between the corporate world and the design sector as well as among diverse creative disciplines.
MCBW START UP is a forum that brings together investors and young entrepreneurs in workshops, coaching sessions, presentations and one-on-one meetings. Highlights of MCBW START UP include Creative Demo Night where founders present their innovations to a critical audience and have the opportunity to discuss them with experts.
DESIGN SCHAU! – MCBW’S SHOWCASE FOR THE PUBLIC INTERESTED IN DESIGN
For nine days, visitors are invited to experience, try and understand all facets of design. Exhibitions, vernissages, events and campaigns at more than 100 venues in Munich and throughout Bavaria provide guidance to the core of Bavarian and international design culture: DESIGN SCHAU! presents Munich as Germany’s extremely lively capital of design.
As part of DESIGN SCHAU!, MCBW FORUM at Museumsinsel is the pivotal meeting point during MCBW. An exhibition and numerous presentations provide comprehensive insight into the design industry and foster critical dialog. MCBW FORUM brings together design aficionados and offers diverse networking opportunities for experts.
