As one of the major events on the city’s Cultural Menu, Creative December is a monthlong campaign with various kinds of activities promoting creativity and design. It has become a unique cultural brand for Shenzhen with an ever-growing influence.

The campaign has also generated a number of renowned exhibitions and design festivals over the past decade, along with promoting original brands and products.

For instance, in 2015 the Alpha Robot produced by UBTECH gained national fame by taking the stage at the Gala of the Chinese New Year on China Central Television. The robot had first been displayed at the Creative December exhibition before gaining public attention.
