In May 2023, creative professionals from the worlds of design and architecture, enterprises and visitors will spend nine days at the munich creative business week discussing the relationship between disruption and creativity based on this year’s motto "Why disruption unleashes creativity".

Keynotes, Panels and Disruption Deep Dive

The afternoon and evening will be dedicated to statements from the mcbw advisory board on the annual theme, followed by two keynotes held by Sep Verboom and Sascha Friesike, before Leyla Acaroglu, this year's Creative Explorer, will illustrate how design is propelling social, economic and sustainable change for the better.

Munich creative business week

The munich creative business week (mcbw) is Germany's largest design event as well as the international showcase for the Bavarian creative and design industry. Organized by bayern design, mcbw serves as a platform for new ideas, trends and creativity, promotes interdisciplinary exchange and makes design a comprehensive experience by bringing together experts, designers, companies and students from disciplines such as design, architecture and business over a period of nine days.


Sep Verboom

The Belgian creative Sep Verboom (1990) is at once designer and social entrepreneur, less concerned with the objectification of the result, more with the context in which it takes place.

‘Too often we measure success and profit in terms of economic values. What happened to the importance of people’s well-being and health of our environment?’

Through his Livable® platform, Verboom brings together partners as diverse as their geographies: from the Peruvian Amazon to Indonesia, and from local governments or commercial companies to NGO’s.

Verboom graduated with a degree in Industrial Design (HOWEST) and in Sustainable Development from (VIVES) both in Kortrijk (BE).

His collaborative approach has been internationally recognised, with numerous expositions and awards. In 2018 Sep Verboom won the Belgian Henry Van De Velde Award for Young Talent. In 2020 his commitment to socially engaged design earned him the prestigious title ‘Designer of the Year’ by Biennale Interieur.
