MUNICH CREATIVE BUSINESS WEEK (MCBW), taking place between 3 and 11 March 2018, is the largest design event in Germany, which illustrates the potential in the field: Over 200 committed Programme Partners create a cross-discipline platform for companies with an affinity for design, designers, design agencies and all other people interested in design. Following the motto "Design transforms", the two programmes - "CREATE BUSINESS!" for experts and "DESIGN SCHAU!" for the public – engage more than 65,000 participants in substantial knowledge transfer and inspiring design experiences. MCBW is organised by BEDA member bayern design GmbH and sponsored by the Bavarian State Ministry for Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology and the City of Munich. iF International Forum Design GmbH is a founding partner. As MCBW partners, BMW Group, Steelcase and Microsoft provide substantial support.
