The six-day long festival runs between November 12-17, and here’s the long and short of what it's all about: Creative types from across all fields come together to offer an all-encompassing insight into the future of form and function.

Whether your interest is in interior innovations or graphic design advances, there’s plenty of happenings to cater to your innovative quirks.
