From our partner Aalto Design Factory:
PRODUCT DESIGN GALA | FRIDAY 21.5.2021 at 9:00-17:00 (EEST)
This year’s gala will be organised as a digital only event. 10 prototypes will be showcased by the student teams. The online platform will open on the Monday 10th of May, while the gala itself will be held on Friday 21st of May.
What does this mean?
Well having the platform open well in advance allows visitors to see what presentations, project booths and other activities there are on the platform. You will be able to see all of our students, their profiles, their expertise and which project they belong to. This way visitors can preplan their Gala Day schedule have more effective use of their time.
