The 2017 edition of the annual design conference is set to focus on architecture, with other speakers including Italian architect Mario Bellini, Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto and designer Daan Roosegaarde.
Now in its 16th year, BODW is run by non-profit organisation Hong Kong Design Centre.
Italy is the partner country for this year's edition, so the theme of the talks is "Italy Makes a Difference". The aim is to offer a fresh take on design-driven innovation through a meaningful dialogue between Italy and Hong Kong.
The programme will be divided up into topics: Brands and Innovation; Communication and Design; Product and Design; Design for Asia; Space and Design; Heritage and Design; and Culture and The City.
More than 120,000 visitors are expected to attend the week-long BODW 2017 programme. Tickets range from HK$700 to HK$ 4,000 (£68 to £388), with optional extras including a gala dinner, the BODW summit, networking events and other activities taking place across the city.
Tickets are available to buy on the event website from now until 1 December 2017.
