In the picture below, you can find the plan where each team booth will be located (for more detailed view, right click and save the picture to your computer). The teams can start assembling the final booth at their final location on Friday 05.05.

Layout for Gala 2023 in NEW design factory.

Few tips during Gala preparations:

- Safety always comes first: remind your team members to use proper safety gear while prototyping. 

- When using tools, remember to return them to the right place, so the next person can easily find them.

- Remind your team members of the DF rules, such as cleaning when using the kitchen and keeping things as tidy as much as possible.


All spaces that will be used for you Gala stands have been booked a week in advance for you so that you have plenty of time to make your booths. You can start setting up your gala stands starting from Friday 5th of May. Everything should be cleaned on Monday 15th the latest.  


We have created an Excel file where you can add all the materials/equipment that you need for your stand.

At Design Factory we have furniture in the storage, so there is no need to buy furniture specifically for the Gala.


Regarding the materials/equipment we can provide:

- Furniture such as tables, chairs, sofas, etc

- Black/White curtains (come to the PDP office to check them)

- Screens/Monitors
