Dublin Design Festival
31 Oct—10 Nov

This year, Dublin Design Festival is a 12 day festival of design, taking place right across the city. Operating as a collaborative and participative umbrella network, the festival brings together principal industry organisations along with key national and International participants. A dynamic programme of events, featuring The Future, with the future at its heart, includes exhibitions, conferences, live events and more, all celebrating and examining the many facets of design and its importance to business, culture and society.

We invite you to feed in, to contribute, to participate. We plan to build on this year’s activities, to broaden audiences and to establish a model that can be rolled out nationally with regional hubs.

We look forward to starting this conversation with you over the course of the festival.

The Future


The Future takes place over two days, across four stages in the incredible halls of the Royal Dublin Society. The Future sets out to prove we can all create a better world through creativity and intent. Businesses can thrive, people and society can bloom, the world can be a brighter, more brilliant place, and we can have a tonne of fun along the way too.

The Future will bring together some of the leading lights in advertising, media, design, creativity, business and culture for a unique celebration of innovation in the industries we work, proving the positive impact we can have on the world, when we apply ambition, innovation and energy to making it so. We’re bringing together a rich, diverse group of individuals, all leaders in their field, from across the spectrum, to share their future thoughts and ambitions, but also to create a vibrant ecosystem of opportunities for future collaborations and positive impact.
