With the workshops and gala dinners held under the main sponsorship of Starwood, design students had the opportunity to meet with many national and international famous designers and trainers, and most importantly, to meet with the furniture industry.
Taking this design event as a duty, Starwood will continue to emphasize the importance of design for our industry by continuing its support for education in this field as well.
With the blood donation organizations that have been carried out jointly with Bursa Red Crescent for ten years and organized twice a year, approximately 1500 units of blood donation and considerable organ and stem cell donations have been provided so far.
