From May 11 to 13 2011 at Pakhuis de Zwijger, Creative Amsterdam will host leading Dutch creative entrepreneurs operating outside the Netherlands. We will celebrate the talent and hard work of these successful go-getters with a varied programme: from open design sessions, business dates and export circles to talk shows, an award show and the first Open Studio Night.
Creative Amsterdam is more than merely three days of inspiration. The programme challenges visitors to be part of the discussions and to take advantage of the business opportunities that are presented. Among others, our guests are:
