The 2024 IAI Design Festival and the 16th IAI Awards Ceremony once again settled on Ludao Island

The 2024 IAI Design Festival and the 16th IAI Awards Ceremony will be held in Xiamen from June 28th to 29th, 2024, as unanimously

decided by the members of the IAI Design Awards Competition Committee of the Asia Pacific Designers Federation.

Introduction to the IAI Awards Venue - Portman Seven Star Bay Hotel

The Xiamen Special Room Portman Seven Star Bay Hotel is the largest French style architectural unit in China, with the world's largest

stained glass dome. It has won the Luban Award for China Construction Engineering in 2020-2021, the "Golden Pillow" China Outstanding

Conference Hotel in 2020-2021, the 2020 CMIC China Most Favorite Gold Award Resort Hotel, and the AHF China Top 10 Exclusive

Tourism Hotels in 2020.

The Portman Seven Star Bay Hotel is located on Guanzhou Road in Tong'an District, Xiamen, adjacent to the Coastal Romantic Road.

It is bustling with tranquility and convenient transportation, making it one of the popular luxury hotels in Xiamen. The hotel consists of

three hotels: Xihai Hotel, Ruihai Hotel, and Yihai Town. All three hotels have a French romantic style but with slight differences. Sculptures

and oil paintings full of artistic charm can be seen everywhere inside and outside the hotel. The sea god Poseidon, egret, and dolphin...

make people truly feel the unique artistic atmosphere and romance of Xiamen, a coastal city. IAI will host the 2024 IAI Design Festival

Awards Ceremony here, which will undoubtedly become the most closely watched annual news hotspot in IAI's history. Let's look forward

to the arrival of this globally anticipated creative feast in the design industry.

IAI Design Festival Exhibition Venue - Xiamen Horticulture Expo Garden ·Jiangnan Water Street

The Xiamen Garden Expo covers an area of 6.76 square kilometers, with the water area accounting for more than half of the total park area.

It is a unique water park in the world. The Garden Expo Park is set against the vast waters of Xinglin Bay, consisting of 5 exhibition islands,

4 ecological landscape islands, and two peninsulas. It naturally forms a multi island structure, with the garden surrounded by stars on the

water and water in the garden. The park is located in Xinglin Bay, Jimei District, Xiamen City, and is the venue of the 6th China International

Garden and Flower Expo. It was opened to tourists on September 23, 2007. It is not only a national 4A level tourist attraction, but also a

national key park and a national urban wetland park.

According to Chinese classical garden schools and combining modern garden styles, the Expo Park has built 10 parks, including North Park,

Jiangnan Park, Lingnan Park, Ethnic Cultural Paek, International Park and Mintai Park. Each park has its own distinctive characteristics.

Jiangnan Water Street is located on the north side of Lingnan Garden. The western half of the area is themed around showcasing the water

town atmosphere of "small bridges, flowing water, and homes". The river channels in the area are winding, with small bridges and green trees

covering the area. Strolling through Song Street, one can see the ancient opera performances being performed on the stage, which is full of

interest. The southern end of it is themed around showcasing official residences and residential buildings in the Ming and Qing dynasties,

showcasing the different living scenes of official and common people's homes during the Ming and Qing dynasties. Jiangnan has always

produced talented and beautiful people, and the study and private school are also cultural landscapes that cannot be missed. At that time,

IAI's major categories of awards, including Architecture Award, Interior Award, Smart Creation Award, Landscape Award, Elite Award, Most

Creative Award, and Lifetime Achievement Award, will be displayed in a row of Jiangnan Water Town architectural spaces on the east side

of the Water Street, open to visitors from all over the world. At this time, the annual Garden Expo Lotus Festival will also be held at the same

time, where hundreds of varieties of lotus will bloom in competition and fragrance will undoubtedly add an extra elegant and bright atmosphere

to the IAI Design Exhibition. Hundreds of thousands of visitors to the Lotus Festival can not only come to observe lotus flowers, but also

admire IAI Design Award works, popularize science and study, which can be said to be a win-win situation. I look forward to this year's IAI

Design Exhibition becoming the most unforgettable exhibition experience for every IAI visitor.

Finally, let us jointly wish the IAI Creative Design Festival a complete success, and thank you for your attention to the IAI Design Festival.
