The main pieces accepted in the event -316 projects made over the last 20 years by 250 designers in all- are being exhibited in a huge exhibition, under the categories of interior design, graphic design, industrial, fashion, textile and digital design.

Among the most frequently represented countries from the region there are Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Spain, Mexico, Peru, Portugal and Venezuela, with more than fifteen designers each.

Cuba will participate with ten proposals among which stand out the 2008 Cuba vs. Blockade campaign, by the Creative Group from the State Council, four posters by young designers, the medical Cardiocid team, the Tropics ceramic set and the textile surface collection Tocororo.

The BID also includes several collateral exhibitions such as Kabum! Mix, a poster exhibition made by Brazilian children and another one dedicated to furniture work and the exhibition Cajas de tránsito: Sillas desde México, made up by pieces from the mid-twentieth century and contemporary.
