What is Antwerp Design Week?
ADW offers a fresh design experience for professionals, such as retailers, hospitality experts, interior designers, and architects.
Brands open their HQs and temporary ADW-locations in and around Antwerp, creating inspiring hubs.
Think of ADW as a professional city trip, where visitors can
meet trusted and new quality partners spanning from furniture to art,
while discovering all that Antwerp has to offer from culture to fashion.
To enhance your Antwerp Design Week experience, we prioritize convenience. We offer hotel and restaurant recommendations, facilitate transportation with car rentals and free options, and divide the city into five districts for easier navigation. Our website and app are the official ADW-guide. The visitors' journey is our priority, and the organization is here to make it as convenient as possible.
What ADW offers exhibitors:
As an organization, we offer participating companies:
Quality and Growth: We foster organic event growth by curating partners to ensure high-quality offerings, attracting qualitative visitors, and selecting appropriate sponsors.
Cross-pollination: During Antwerp Design Week, brands invite their clients who share interests with other brands present, fostering collaboration and a sense of community within the design industry.
Visibility: We ensure consistent branding and marketing through various channels such as mailings, website, and social media, providing visibility for participating brands. Additionally, all participants will be featured in the City Guide, both in print and digital formats, along with receiving a merchandising package.
Convenience and Organization: We facilitate free logistics during the event and provide a centralized information point to guide visitors with free drinks and bites. Additionally, we organize registration and scanning processes, and share visitor contact details with participating companies after the event.
Partnerships: We establish partnerships with hotels, restaurants, sponsors, and other relevant entities to enhance the overall experience and opportunities for participants.
ADW is a curated event
We don't sell square meters and operate as a curated event: this ensures exhibitors align with the audience, making each company worth visiting. We aim to form a unified collective (mainly Belgian design) to attract visitors to Antwerp for multiple days.
