The inaugural, Meet D3 event, is billed as an experience to explore and celebrate design, art, fashion and food, running from April 2-4 at the Dubai Design District (D3) the three-day programme is packed with internationally-recognised performers and artists who are slated to co-create and share their latest projects alongside emerging and established regional talents from the UAE.

Leading the charge in food innovation are British culinary whizz kids Sam Bompas & Harry Parr, known for staging astonishing and theatrical food events. With such creations to their name as; architectural jelly banquets and flavourful multisensory fireworks, this experimental due will be introducing a new culinary design concept to the programme of Meet D3 – 'The Chewing Gum Factory.' Set to be more inventive than even Willy Wonka's factory, this is a bespoke experience just for the Dubai event, where unique chewing gum concepts and flavours can be created from scratch. A sticky, but wonderfully interactive attraction for all ages.
