In 2024 GOING PRO – a business development program, is carried out specifically aimed towards individual practitioners, studios and smaller companies based in Skåne. In the project, a selection of motivated designers gets the opportunity to take the next step in their creative entrepreneurship.

In a group exhibition at Lokstallarna during Southern Sweden Design Days, the participants present their work in the Pavilion with twelve rooms – a 120 m2 design pavilion designed entirely in wood by the Malmö-based architectural office Förstberg Ling. The modular and reusable pavilion was shown for the first time at the London Design Fair in collaboration with Svenskt Trä and has been rebuilt for Southern Sweden Design Days.
