DesignMarch Reykjavik

March 25-29

DesignMarch 2020

Join us and be inspired by Iceland's bustling design scene at DesignMarch!
DesignMarch is Iceland's annual design festival. It will take place for the twelfth time on 25–29 March 2020 - transforming the most northerly capital in the world into one big venue for design!

It’s a unique opportunity to get up-close with the locals and experience the creative and innovative side of Iceland. For five days in March, Reykjavík celebrates all things design, from fashion to architecture, jewelry to product design. The scene is small and intimate, which means you are likely to get the chance to meet the stars of the show, the designers.

The festival opens with DesignTalks, a signature event, and a day full of lectures by internationally acclaimed designers and leading local design thinkers.
DesignMarch is organized by the Iceland Design Centre, the promotion agency for Icelandic design and architecture.
See you at DesignMarch!

Reykjavik Marina is the official hotel of DesignMarch 2020 and has a special offer for design enthusiasts during the five days of the festival.  Enjoy the quirky design and great location of the hotel while mingling with speakers and participants of DesignMarch.
