How do you do it?
If you are shy and do not wish to call or meet anyone: We have prepared several documents and materials as well as a special Exhibition Pitch System to help you. First of all, at the most basic level, you can actually spend 3 minutes of your time right now to start this. We have a system called Exhibition Pitch to automate this process. Using our Exhibition Pitch System is easy. All you need to do is to provide contact details of related institutions and organizations and we will contact them ourselves. We will do all the heavy lifting from there on, send them materials, books and merchandise as well as a Letter of Intent, and you will ripe the benefits if our pitch turns into a collaboration.

But we know you can do a better job by having a lunch or dinner, or even in an elevator pitch, or simply by making an appointment and meeting the right people at their office. All you need to do is to let the relevant people know that (1) A’ Design Award, World’s largest and most influential design accolade is interested in organizing an exhibition in their venue. (2) This exhibition would create socio-economic and cultural value for hosting institution as well as positively contribute to brand value and global recognition. (3) You have the contacts, and all you need is to sort out some little details such as amount of space allocated, timelines, and level of cooperation they desire. That’s it. They will most likely ask for a formal presentation, which we will help you by providing with you an official presentation letter template, as well as whatever you need such as books, merchandise etc for your next meeting. Furthermore, the Letter of Intent could be useful for you as it lists value propositions for venues who allocate us space.

If you do not know anyone but feel you could reach the people by contacting them via regular mail, post or electronic mail, we got you covered as well. We have prepared an official presentation template that you can download, modify and use for your pitch. We are also ready to send you additional yearbooks, merchandise and content that you can use to pitch and impress the authorities and relevant people, you can contact our support and ask for such documents delivered to you. Finding contacts, in case you do not have them ready, is also very easy for you; all you need to do is to check websites of ; governments, national museums, trenched and established art galleries, design-oriented large brands, design related trade shows, ministry of arts, ministry of culture, ministry of economics, government-level economic development initiatives, culture department of cities, cities themselves, design faculties, architecture faculties and universities themselves in your own language; it is easier for you to find these local contacts and get in touch with them.
