  • Hi Folks— One of our favorite DWs is coming up, December 4-9. We've attended it for at least 9 years and for the last two we've held juries for the 3 Spark "Dreamer Design" categories— covering Concept, MAKR and Proto Design. BODW has many components which you can  check out at www.bodw.com. New this year is the Design Inspire Expo, presented by our friends at the Hong Kong Trade Development Council. So—will Spark be there again in 2017? You betcha! All Best— --Spark
