The international summit for the design and communications industry


The festival connects creatives, designers as well as print and media specialists in one place: the Gmund Campus. At UNFOLDED, the focus is on meeting and exchanging ideas with creative people from all over the world. It is about learning, being amazed and, of course, having fun together.


Two days with a full program. In addition to the 400 best print objects competing for the prestigious Gmund Award, international exhibitors from the fields of design, print, brand, and materiality will showcase their innovative products in the halls of the paper production facility and thus a multitude of new approaches to analog communication of the present and future.

Top-class speakers will discuss current topics and offer guests new perspectives and creative input. A panel discussion and various mini workshops complete the program.


This total package makes the UNFOLDED Festival a get-together for creatives, designers, marketers, and paper enthusiasts from all over the world.

Due to the pandemic, we are currently unable to announce a date for 2022. But: We are working tirelessly on it! 

Let's all meet again at a fantastic UNFOLDED Festival 2022!
