This is what happened in the past few days.
The swanky Sofitel Dubai Downtown joined hands with Dubai Design Week 2016 to host the first ever Instameet themed on design, art and architecture.
You and I both know how many Instagrammers there are worldwide, but from that massive number, only seven were chosen. With a combined following of more than 3.5 million, these seven global social media influencers, design architects and art enthusiasts were flown to Dubai. From Berlin to Barcelona and Mexico to Tokyo, we’re talking names like Nicanor Garcia, Joerg Nicht, Dirk Bakker, Ana Barros, Matt Scutt, Vicky Navarro and Hiroaki Fukuda.
They got to experience the various elements of design the city has to offer and were given exclusive access to Dubai Design Week (it’s on until 29 October and there’s lots of exciting stuff happening. Find out more here).
