What is Antwerp Design Week?
Antwerp Design Week unfolds in the heart of Antwerp, Belgium, offering a unique showcase of renowned Belgian and international brands. Unlike traditional trade shows, this event takes you beyond booth limits, allowing you to explore complete showrooms, warehouses, and offices, providing an immersive brand experience. It showcases Antwerp as the global design capital that it is.
Antwerp, a vibrant metropolis in miniature, adds allure to this event with its distinctive architecture, rich culture, exquisite cuisine, and lively nightlife.
Antwerp Design Week is more than a professional event; it's a brief escape, seamlessly merging work and pleasure. It is your professional citytrip.
What is unique about this?
ADW is the solution to the growing demand for highlighting quality design, offering a complete experience to the B2B community.
Convenience of many brands together - one visit and one trip to discover a lot of new brands in their own Headquarters is the perfect way to save time.
Personal guidance in the showrooms gives a feeling of trust.
A wonderful way to get to know Antwerp: the hidden gem of Europe.
Why does this event take place at several locations?
To give the visitor the full experience of discovering Belgian design, we find it more than necessary to invite buyers, architects and design professionals to the heart of the brands themselves, to their headquarters or shops. This is what makes this event unique.
How to book my showrooms?
Exhibitions are open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Since ADW is a B2B event, registration is required to gain access to the various locations you want to visit. After registration, you will recieve a personal QR code that you can use at the entrance of the different showrooms.
