This fifth edition of the festival runs until March 31 and aims to promote and strengthen Madrid's design network. Specialists, designers and professionals of the sector are the protagonists of the more than 200 activities planned, a very extensive program.

Thus, up to 640 professionals will participate in more than 40 exhibitions, 7 installations and more than 200 activities. This year, the festival proposes transformation, economy and prosperity as essential axes, on which the reflection of its multiple activities is designed. It also establishes, as a transversal purpose, to redesign the world, in reference to the adaptation to the new times and the improvement of our societies.

The festival is decentralized in the capital, occupying numerous halls and art centers. "Extraperlo.
