This year, the forum will explore the potential of design when it integrates with other fields such as technology, management, psychology, humanity and art.

Under the theme “Design Platform Creates Value through Integration,” it will offer a glimpse into how design changes the world, with speakers drawn from various fields such as architecture, industrial design, social media, food and 3-D printing.
