Business of Design Week announces key speakers

Next week sees the launch of the Hong Kong Centre’s internationally renowned 11th annual Business of Design Week. Asia’s leading event on innovation in design tackles current design issues through various exhibitions, international forums and outreach activities tailored to provide designers, business leaders and the public with communication opportunities to build strong business and commercial development.

One of this year’s key speakers will be Anne Chapelle, on whom a spotlight was cast last week, after she announced the end of her time at the helm of Anne Demeulmeester. Chapelle, also CEO at Haider Ackerman, will share a bill with the likes of Jean-Pierre Lutgen, CEO of Ice Watch, milliner Elvis Pompilio and Asian designers Six Lee and Kay Kwok.


Business of Design Week will run from December 2 until December 7, at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
