"Guest Country: Israel"
Aiming to show the creative and innovative potential of Israel, and to facilitate synergies and business opportunities with professionals and companies in Barcelona, the Barcelona Design Week 2014 will include a full programme of activities under the initiative "Guest Country: Israel", organised in collaboration with Design Museum Holon and the Embassy of Israel in Spain.

"Guest country: Israel" will focus on entrepreneurship and innovation, two strategic areas for both Israel and Barcelona. The activity programme will be composed of conferences, exhibitions, business meetings, networking sessions and a roundtable that will discuss about the creative and entrepreneurship system in Israel and Catalonia.

By taking part in the Barcelona Design Week 2014, Israel joins Austria (2011), Sweden (2012) and the Netherlands (2013) as guest country, a unique opportunity to show its creative and entrepreneur potential within an international event, as well as enhancing business and institutional links with Barcelona.

Barcelona Design Week, organised by BCD since 2006, consolidated itself as the reference event for design and business in Barcelona, and as one of the most important Design Weeks internationally. The Barcelona Design Week has the support of the Barcelona City Council, the Generalitat (Autonomous Government) of Catalonia, and the sponsorship and collaboration of a large number of companies and professionals.
