Over 200 regional professionals to compete at the 2018 designMENA Quiz Night

The second round of designMENA Quiz Night is going to be held on 25 April at ON42 at Media One Hotel in Dubai’s Media City, and more than 200 interior designers and architects from across the UAE have signed up to compete.

Industry professionals are invited to join the teams from designMENA, Commercial Interior Design and Middle East Architect and compete to wrest the title of ‘UAE’s Smartest Creatives’ from reigning champions LXA (aka the ‘Artistic Monkeys’).

For those who were not at last year’s quiz, it was presented by Dubai 92 Radio presenter Catboy (Simon Smedley) alongside his partner Lorra and featured seven trivia rounds, some focused on design and architecture, and others on general knowledge topics including music and movies.

This year has seen a sharp increase in participants, with regional practices from across the relevant industries like Bishop Design, Woods Bagot, Godwin Austen Johnson, La Casa,  Edge, Aurecon and many others, signed up.

According to sponsor Cosentino’s Eddy Abou Khalil, General Manager, Middle East, the event promises to give architects and designers the opportunity to engage with each other in a competitive, yet friendly atmosphere.

“I think people will enjoy the adrenaline rush of the competition, networking with industry peers, building relationships with suppliers and industry partners, and, most of all, a light-hearted evening to remember,” he said. “I think it’ll be great to watch the architecture and design industry in action in a friendly match.”
