Iranian Car DesignersThe collective concept car design exhibition titled "From Dream to Reality" took place from 18 to 23 April 2009 at the Kamal Aldin Behzad Gallery in Teheran, Iran.

The purpose of the event was to present the works and showcase the abilities of young Iranians graduated in Industrial and Transportation Design.

As Farzad Barkhordary, one of the organizers of the event, explains: "Given the great distance existing between Iran, the auto industry and the graduates in Car Design and Industrial Design, one main target of the exhibition is to create a more logical relationship between university and industry."

The goal is to repeat the event every year, in order to showcase the developments in Iranian auto industry and design to automotive professionals and enthusiasts.

Participant designers included: Iman Maghsoudi, Farzad Barkhordary, Alireza Mohammdzade, Keyvan Naderi, Mohsen Jafari malek, Hossein Soleymani, Yaser Rashid Shomali, Mohammad Reza Shojaee, Hosein Amini-Yekta, Majid Razmi, Hamed Amini, Ali Reza Sahragard, Peyman Mardani, Amin Dahre Sobh, Mostafa Bonakdar, Kaveh Naser Bakht, Hesamaldin Jeddy, Mahdy Sadeghi Rad.

Among the works on display were free sketches, renderings and individual collections of university projects and other works.
