How are projects/events selected?

No.

Does Southern Sweden Deign Days provide venues for events/exhibitions? 

Participants are responsible for finding a venue for events. However, the FDC organisation is willing to advise and – to some extent – help participants find a location for their event. Please indicate in application if assistance is requested. 

All participants can apply for exhibition space at Southern Sweden Design Days main location Lokstallarna. Read more here.

Are direct sales allowed during Southern Sweden Design Days?

Southern Sweden Design Days is not primarily a commercial event. During Southern Sweden Design Days direct sales should not be a main activity. Only products for registered events can be offered for sale if so desired. Direct sales should be separated from the exhibition and may not take place in the exhibition itself. At Southern Sweden Design Days the exhibitions, activities and content are leading, not direct sales.
