    INTRODUCTION: GIGA & GIGA Material Challenge

    GIGA is a building and material think tank with locations in Shanghai, Beijing and Montreal. One of GIGA's aims is to research cutting-edge materials and highlight innovative products. We introduced GIGA Material Challenge as a way for designers and architects to experiment with materials in the truest sense; with "hands on" activities. Custom designed by suppliers, Material Challenges are fun, showing the unique properties and features of materials and build designers’ expertise.


    How it works

    - All attending designers will experience your material through 20 minute activities.

    - Quizzes will test designers' knowledge of your material.

    - Exclusive event. Each event is limited to 5 brands.

    - Designers will compete to win prizes (Grand Prize is iPad mini).

    Why it works

    - activities are fast-paced, memorable and fun - designers will remember your brand.

    - activities build credibility and trust in your brand, materials and services.

    - when specifying, designers choose materials they remember and trust.

    - Material Challenges are fun, useful, and competitive - designers love to participate.


    • Designer Interaction: Up to 100 designers will attend the event. Every attendee will experiment hands-on with your materials.

    • Exclusive exposure: only 5 brands will be selected to participate in each event.

    • Strategic Positioning: Position your brand as an industry leader: showcase your expertise, knowledge and competitive benefits.

    • Media Exposure: Promoted on GIGA’s website, WeChat and Weibo.

    • Participants List: receive contact information of ALL participants.
