The participants include established bureaus, high-profile designers, talented newcomers, and recently graduated designers, one of the reasons why this Dutch Design Week is the perfect meeting place for designers, companies, and public.

Unless stated otherwise, admission to the exhibitions is free of charge. Please note that visitors need to register in advance for most seminars, workshops, lectures, and company visits. More information is available in the visitor programme on the website.
