It consists of world renowned institutions, experts and eminent personnel in the field of creative design. The Board plays an instrumental role in the success of the Think Tank project, whose main duty is to participate in the Forum and related activities. It supports Shanghai government in strategy planning. Members are expected to facilitate resources matching and undertake initiatives including carrying out international cooperation projects, talents exchanges and conducting research on global trends and creative industries.


First advisory board members are composed of the founders and curators of world's major design festivals and weeks, the managing directors of internationally renowned design exhibitions and fairs, the presidents of the international design industry associations and officials in charge of the UN agencies. They gathered in Shanghai from October 9 - 12, 2014 to participate in 2014 Shanghai Design Week for " First Session of Shanghai Creative Cities Advisory Board Meeting" and " International Creative Cities Design Innovation Forum" to explore and share their insights about the global development of creative industries, the mission and goals, principles and contents of Think Tank and their wonderful views of creative design.
