The first and only Design Week in Greece returns to Thessaloniki at the beginning of summer, with a central theme that addresses the various aspects of design that support and serve gastronomy. From June 6th through the 11th, the city is filled with activities and events, competitions and exhibitions, speeches and presentations, thematic tours and routes, workshops and B2B meetings as well as images, flavors, smells and aromas!
As of 2021, Thessaloniki is the first Greek city to join Unesco's Network of Creative Cities in the creative field of gastronomy. ThessDW 2023 draws inspiration from its host city’s international distinction and recognition as it constitutes a major event where creativity in all its forms meets tradition, the present and the future of food, cooking, catering and, in general, the full lifecycle of food.
Thessaloniki Design Week fosters, among other things, imagination, participation, diversity and extroversion.
In this context, an open invitation is extended to the global community of designers and creators, regardless of their profession or specialization, to submit their ideas. These can involve both applied and non-applied projects; they should, however, address the following two thematic areas:
Α. Designing the restaurant of the future
Β. Smart and innovative food concepts
