Mission


 
TO PRODUCE A GRIPPING ANNUAL MEETING POINT OF GLOBAL CREATIVE LEADERS WITH SERBIA AND SOUTH EAST EUROPE IN BELGRADE, WITH A NONPAREIL DESIGN CONFERENCE AS CENTREPIECE.

In this time of global economic crisis and economy of transition still developing in Serbia and a large part of South East Europe, our mission can only be to survive and successfully stage yet another amazing seven-days-festival of the creative industries, albeit the most relevant one in the 100-million people region between Vienna and Istanbul.

The foundation is clear – we have an amazing reputation to defend and develop further: our famous international three days conference has been voted one of the best global creative conferences by worldwide opinion leaders and media, 5 years in a row, and the list of participants is growing and setting absolutely new standards and perspectives, globally unmatched!

Additionally to the conference, respectful to economical realities, we continue to develop our next true mission point: to each year again and again transform the streets, museums, showrooms, workshops, studios, galleries, schools, media, and in general, the MINDS of Belgrade, into a week-long international place of connection between the creative industries and the world of business, without bias, enabling our citizens and visitors to enjoy an inspirational city-wide festival, as well as allowing Belgrade to fulfil its creative potential.

Our MISSION is to convert Lecturers to Ambassadors, Visitors to Members, and Everyone to Loyal Supporter.
 

My BDW began in Milan, having a crazy meeting with Jovan at the design library in ZONA TORTONA. 09:15 A short espresso with Mauricio Ribotti: "Are you sure you have a meeting with Jovan this time in the morning? It must be a mistake!" 09:40 a man with a small black suitcase enters the café: "Hi CARO!" both man hug. "Oh! Galit, you are also here?" We sit down and immediately start to talk "design”. After 3 espressos I know I have found my partner for the next revolution! Coming to BDW was wonderful, like meeting old friends. BDW is the most passionate conference, full of amazing designpeople that share impossible designdreams. I was honored to be a part of this group  - and would love to see you all again!
