On July 6, DESIGN TOKYO will come back for the much-awaited 2016 edition of GIFTEX. The 3-day event, held at Tokyo Big Sight in Japan, will include 7 different specialized shows, from tableware, fashion accessories, beauty products to baby and kids items. As DESIGN TOKYO will be the leading protagonist of the event, GIFTEX 2016 will serve as the stage for innovative design products, with two special initiatives aimed at showcasing the most cutting-edge items: DESIGN TOKYO PRODUCTS AWARD, which will select the best “marketable” products in terms of forward thinking, and Proto Lab, where to discover the latest creations by individual designers.
GIFTEX 2016 will also feature both strong international and local side: on the one hand, it will include many design pieces from all over the world; on the other, it will offer an unprecedented selection of high-quality Japanese products, which will also be a key focus of the event. As represented by the zones of Japan Now and Made in Japan, GIFTEX 2016 will in fact showcase over 50,000 local design pieces on sale. Beyond being an amazing unmissable fair, GIFTEX 2016 will also serve as a business platform where design professionals and international entrepreneurs will have the unique chance to enhance their networks and learn more about Japanese production, as almost any major manufacturers of the nation will participate in the fair. The eleventh edition of GIFTEX is really going to be the place for not only eastern design lovers, but anyone willing to gain a comprehensive understanding of the global design scenario.
