NYCxDESIGN is a brand that puts a spotlight on design throughout the year, culminating in New York City’s annual celebration of design each May. The 2020 edition will take place May 12-20 and showcases over a dozen design disciplines through exhibitions, installations, trade shows, talks, product launches, open studios, and more. And, like design itself, NYCxDESIGN is everywhere, with events taking place throughout all of New York City. In 2019, NYCxDESIGN attracted nearly 310,000 attendees to over 400 events. In July of 2020, NYCxDESIGN’s operation was assumed by SANDOW, a media and innovation company, whose brands are rooted in design. Edward Hogikyan, formerly Chief Marketing Officer at New York City Economic Development Corporation, joined SANDOW as the NYCxDESIGN’s Executive Director at that time.
