The Cape Town Design Trail will include product launches, visits to concept stores, staged window displays, private art viewings, meet-and-greet sessions with designers, and exclusive networking functions and trend talks. The new trail gives participants one-on-one access to incredible showrooms and private maker spaces while flying the design banner for the industry and involving the city as a whole.
Dedicated routes and maps will guide visitors through the curated series of open studios. Designers, architects, decorators, artists and the hospitality sector will showcase spaces that bring creativity to the city. The event extends over four weekends to help visitors discover exhibitions and installations located at 200 participating sites. There will be 30 full days for meetings within the framework of an expanded programme of cocktail parties, open days, workshops, private tours and roundtables.
