Award Ceremony

Red Dot honours the best designers and manufacturers of the year

The award ceremony for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018 took place in Essen, Germany, on 9 July. Every year, it comprises three different events: the Red Dot Gala, the Winners’ Dinner and the Designers’ Night.

Red Dot Gala

During the Red Dot Gala, the laureates of the Red Dot: Best of the Best accept their trophies on stage at Essen’s opera house, the Aalto-Theater. Another highlight is the awarding of the “Red Dot: Design Team of the Year” title in front of around 1,200 international guests.

Winners’ Dinner

After the Red Dot Gala, the exclusive Winners’ Dinner takes place on the grounds of the Zollverein World Heritage Site. Some 400 persons, among them laureates as well as representatives from business, politics and the media, will enjoy the culinary delights served up by a star chef and his crew.

Designers’ Night

After the Red Dot Gala, the international design scene meets at the Designers’ Night in the Red Dot Design Museum, where the Red Dot winners receive their certificates. Everybody celebrates their success together in the midst of the award-winning products, as the after-show party is simultaneously the launch of the winners’ exhibition “Design on Stage”.
