International Design Policy Conference

The Bureau of European Design Associations (BEDA) will organise the International Design Policy Conference in Helsinki on 4–5 December 2019.

The high-level conference, held in the margins of Finland’s Presidency of the Council of the EU, is organised in collaboration with Ornamo Art and Design Finland, the Finnish member organisation in BEDA. Through Ornamo, Finland currently chairs the Board of BEDA for the first time. Coupled with Finland’s Presidency of the Council of the EU, this offers an excellent opportunity for Finland to host an international conference on design policy.

The aim of the conference is to raise and maintain Finland’s profile as a design-driven society, and to promote international-level dialogue between the creative industries and other industries. The conference will be the kick-off for a new EU agenda on design policy.

Organiser: Ornamo Art and Design Finland, in cooperation with the Bureau of European Design Associations (BEDA)
