Hebei International Industrial Design Week 2020

In recent years, cities and industries have faced unprecedented challenges because of natural disasters, environmental pollution, and resource scarcity. Entering 2020, due to the unbalanced development structure of the global industrial chain, trade disputes, COVID-19 and other issues, the daily life of human beings and the global supply chain are almost shut down. The international cooperation system urgently needs a new framework and new order, and the existing supply chain is also facing the challenge of upgrading and reorganizing.

 We are finally forced to reflect on the existing survival and development model--Can the development of the city be better connected with ecology, resources, culture and customs? What opportunities and challenges will the existing industrial foundation face when the inherent "consumption-production" model and the industrial chain are re-arranged?

Collaborating with British industrial design master Michael Young, the 3rd Hebei International Industrial Design Week will examine the future cities and industrial forms from a new perspective at this special moment, integrating talents and resources from Xiongan, Hebei-Beijing-Tianjin, innovating development models and design prospects to create a harmonious, symbiotic, inclusive and pluralistic world.

Past / Future

HIDW creates a multi-level and forward-looking design event covering the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, taking into account the traditional industries and cultural resources of Hebei Province and the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, and introducing the international design community around the future positioning of the Xiongan New Area and the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei urban circle trends and thoughts. It leads the development of Hebei's industrial design with a forward-looking perspective, thus empowering Hebei's future construction.

Industry / City

Hebei is a major industrial manufacturing province with a strong foundation for industrial development. Xiongan New Area is responsible for evacuation of Beijing's non-capital functions, a high-level modern socialist city, a new engine for a modern economic system, and a national model positioning for high-quality development. HIDW attracts a group of world-renowned experts, companies and institutions in the fields of design, Internet, urban construction and other fields to gather in Xiongan New Area to discuss industrial design, service design, design thinking, and urban design at multiple levels including practice of  industrial transformation, emerging industries and future cities. 

Outcome / Value

It aims to show the design results, reflect the commercial and social value brought by the design, improve the government, enterprises, and the public's awareness of design, and gradually tap the demand.
