Danish design solutions, which are created with a basis in proud Danish craft traditions, are in great demand both at home and abroad.  Sustainability and innovative, nature-based solutions in this connection are therefore often the central focus when The Crown Princess participates in business promotional campaigns internationally. On 17 April 2023, Her Royal Highness opens the exhibition “This is Denmark”, which is aimed at increasing awareness of Danish design and sustainability to promote Danish exports.

A total of 17 Danish companies are taking part in the promotional campaign, and, together with the organizations Confederation of Danish Industry and Creative Denmark as well as the Embassy of Denmark in Rome, the companies will participate in the Danish exhibition, which takes place in connection with the world’s largest annual furniture and design event, Milan Design Week 2023.

Her Royal Highness will be accompanied by Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs Morten Bødskov during the promotional campaign.
