The 2017 NYCxDesign will run from May 3rd to 24th. The fifth annual celebration of global design will increase from two to three weeks for 2017. The extended program for 2017 will allow for expanded programming in venues throughout the City.
"New York is the most innovative city in the world and NYCxDESIGN is one way we are able to recognize, not only, design talent in the five boroughs, but also our world-renowned design schools and businesses that are leading the way. Design and innovation makes our city unique and moves our world forward," said Mayor de Blasio.
NYCxDESIGN 2016 featured over 500 events throughout the five boroughs including the Design Pavilion at Astor Place Plaza and the first annual NYCxDESIGN Awards consisted of companies and design leaders who excelled in design fields such as urban design, fashion, architecture, technology, public space projects and more.
"NYCxDESIGN 2017 will be the biggest and best citywide celebration of global design since its inception five years ago, uniting New Yorkers and industry leaders in learning more about the power of design," commented NYCEDC Maria Torres-Springer. "With over 50,000 designers employed at over 7,500 firms and generating over $500 million in City tax revenue, the City's growing design sector plays a critical role in our economy and NYCEDC is proud to support its continued growth."
