September 16-19.2021
Application Deadline: 1 June 2021

A four-day design-route from and for Amsterdam designers, architects, brands, showrooms, galleries, academies, and other colleagues.

GLUE amsterdam connected by design connects all locations and provides a substantive and attractive program for colleagues and the public.

Covid-19

In this time of corona and in our current society of social distancing that we will be living in for the foreseeable future, GLUE, with its design route that fans out across the city, is the ideal event. Nevertheless, we ask the exhibitors to follow the guidelines that the City of Amsterdam sets out shortly before the event, to maintain distance, to wash your hands frequently, to be inspired, and to have fun.
