BEDA is the largest design representation body in Europe.

We have 50 members from 25 countries within the geographical limits of Europe. They are all leading design promotion centres (usually funded by Government/public money) or professional design and trade associations (usually funded by the design industry of that country). Our professional design and trade association members represent hundreds of thousands of individual designers across Europe.

What do we all do?

Between us, we account for the majority of all design activities undertaken at a national and regional level across Europe. Our Events Calendar highlights just a few of the exciting activities taking place to promote design, to educate companies about the benefits of design and to raise the awareness of the impact of design in our every daily lives.

Where can I find more information?

Between us, we also publish a huge amount of material that covers everything from national surveys and scoping reports to policy documents and thought leadership pieces. Why not subscribe to BEDA’s e-news to be kept up to date with what is going on across Europe.
