The board of the Design Federation has confirmed that Tallinn has been chosen as the city that will welcome the European Design Festival in June 2022. The prestigious event, which gathers hundreds of communication designers from all over the European continent (and beyond) is set to resume after a two year break, made necessary due to the ongoing pandemic. It consists of exhibitions, talks, design walks, workshops, conferences, social events and of course the European Design Awards gala.
The ED-Festival has since 2007 been hosted in cities like Stockholm, Zurich, Rotterdam, Helsinki, Istanbul, Vienna, Porto and Oslo, to name a few. Its mission is to celebrate European design, facilitate designers to meet, be inspired and build networks, but also to help promote the design discipline to wider audiences. “Being selected to host European Design Awards in 2022 is a great recognition to Estonia as an excellent location for international high-level conferences and events. We are extremely proud that Tallinn will be joining the outstanding lineup of EDAwards hosts cities and we are ready to impress the international design community!“ adds Kadri Karu, Managing Director of Estonian Convention Bureau.
