Dubai Design District (d3) represents a new class of economic free zone or business park tailored to offer a platform for a very specific niche sector; those working in the design industry. It is specifically designed to forge an active design community tailored to contemporary business needs. An inclusive world created for the entire creative community, from global brands to start-ups, from established names to new talent, d3’s doors are open to everyone operating in the creative space.

Besides the design, d3 offers also a wide range of other activities, allowing different companies to operate in the same community and to benefit from this productive network.
