Participation is open to emerging independent designers and established brands alike, as well as museums, universities and galleries. There are three ways to participate in the Venice Design Biennial, depending on who you are and what you want to show.
The Main Group Exhibition follows a strong curatorial approach, with a different theme for each edition, characterized by the interaction of emerging and established designers and brands.
The title and dates for the 2023 edition will be announced soon.
Collateral Projects are exhibitions presented in independent spaces across Venice, following autonomous curatorial concepts. They are part of the Venice Design Biennial programme and promoted through our official channels and press activities.
Applications for the 2023 edition will open soon.

The VDB Residency brings a designer in Venice for one month to collaborate with local traditional craftsmen, aiming to create a strong bond between cutting-edge design and the city. The winner of the Residency for 2021 was Tadeas Podracky.

We are excited to be supported by McArthurGlen - Noventa di Piave Designer Outlet as Main Partner of the 2023 edition.
