The third important thing is that we presented to our society that we deserve support to our work – says Jovan Jelovac, founder and chairman of Belgrade Design Week. – We already have 150 Serbian and worldwide media interested for the event. This year we have one important inovation, that is dizajnPark (designPark), a kind of design fair where people can meet each other and arrange some new projects and new job in this period of world financial crisis.
