Costs of participation

Hopefully the time of drastic COVID measures is behind us. And we understand the impact of this period. That is why we would like to accommodate individual designers and small design studios (up to 20 employees), by not charging them with any registration fees for DDW. Do you have questions? We are happy to help! Please contact the programme team.

Overview of costs and tickets

Depending on the category and the size of your organisation, there may be participation costs. This also includes a number of DDW tickets and the tickets that you can buy with a discount. View the overview and your category.

Are you also organising (short) activities as a participant? Then keep in mind that visitors and team members always need a DDW ticket if the activity takes place at a DDW location for which you need a ticket.

What do you get from DDW?

As an official DDW participant you will receive the following:

  • Listing on the free DDW map with a circulation of 100,000 copies (only if you participate in a 9-day expo).
  • Own programme page within the online DDW programme. Here visitors can find information about your organisation, project, location, opening hours, logo, special events, themes, photos and videos.
  • Numbered location sign (for location managers). Sign corresponds to the location number on the map and makes your location visible to visitors during DDW. Please note: 1 location number is used for multiple participants at 1 location. (This only applies to 9-day exhibitions).
  • DDW tickets: Depending on the participant category and the associated costs, you will receive a number of DDW tickets for your own use. View here how many tickets are available per category.
  • Support in finding the right location.
