Since 2017, the People’s Government of Hebei Province has been vigorously promoting the integrated innovation development between industrial design and industry transformation, based on the three opportunities of the coordinated development of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, the high-standard construction in Xiongan New Area and the preparation of 2022 Zhangjiakou Winter Olympics. Therefore, Hebei International Industrial Design Week (HIDW) emerges at the right moment.

With the theme of “Design Vitalizes the City of the Future”, HIDW 2022 takes the “1+N” mode to set the main venue in Xiongan and the sub-venues in Shijiazhuang, Qinhuangdao and Dingzhou. There are several exhibition areas including Hebei Industrial Design Achievement Exhibition Area, “Wonderful” Xiongan Exhibition Area, Netherlands Partner Country Featured Design Exhibition Area, Overseas Excellent Design Exhibition Area, Curator Exhibition Area, Future City Design Exhibition Area and Domestic Frontier Design Exhibition Area, which is designed to show the width and depth of design innovation value chain, build the design eco-business circle, promote design matching cooperation and empower industry innovation. 

HIDW invites overseas design institutions from Netherlands, Italy, Britain, Sweden and domestic exhibitors from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Beijing, Shenzhen, Guangdong, Jiangxi, etc. Combining online and offline exhibition modes, it builds an international platform of design cooperation integrating “forum, exhibition and award” events, including Opening Ceremony & Keynote Speech, Xiongan Design Forum, Industrial Design Innovation Achievement Exhibition, International New Design Products Launch, GIDA 2022 Award Ceremony, “Dutch Design Day” Partner Activity, and Design Innovation Tour. At the same time, it creates a never-ending online “design week” by applying 5G, VR/AR, big data and other modern information technologies to break the limits of time and space and by collaborating with online platforms of using advanced technologies including “cloud exhibition” and “cloud live” to link offline activities.

The sub-venue activities of Hebei International Industrial Design Week (HIDW) were organized by the related municipal governments of Hebei Province. Combined with the Design Innovation Tour, a series of activities were held such as Design Summit Forum, Design Master Lecture and Matchmaking Meeting. The Design Innovation Tour links the main venue activities in the first 4 days and the subsequent sub-venue activities during HIDW. It organizes the visit to Hebei industry clusters for design organizations and designers from Netherlands, Sweden, Beijing, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Tianjin and other countries and regions, in order to give a close investigation to Hebei industry advantages, to expand the influence of HIDW further and to show Hebei's determination and confidence of developing industrial design and promoting industrial transformation to home and abroad.
