International meeting of design experts and their clients – Face to Face - was held from 23 to 25 October 2008 in Ludwigsburg, which is famous as a film, media and design centre. Face to Face 2008 brought designers and businessmen from Poland and Germany together. On the Polish side, this year’s partner was the “Silesian Castle of Art and Business” in Cieszyn.

“We are very happy that this year’s choice fell to Poland, which has a lot of things praiseworthy. We have good and fresh design which is gaining better and better reputation.” – Ewa Gołębowska, Silesian Castle of Art and Enterprise Director.

Face to Face is the only design conference worldwide to constantly bring design clients and professional designers onto the stage together – since 2000. So far to participate in Face to Face was invited: Great Britain, The Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Malaysia, Austria and Esthonia. At Face to Face, the focus is on dialogue between professional designers and design clients: bringing people together – actively, directly, and across borders. They make design processes publicly known, and present projects from design, architecture and the world of business .
