In collaboration with creative media partner A’DAM&Co., broadcasting partner SALTO television and Mediacollege Amsterdam/Bas de Groot.

On the eighteenth floor of A’DAM Toren on the river IJ, GLUE participants and influential Amsterdam creatives will be interviewed by journalists, including Daan Borrel, Tracy Metz, Jeroen Junte, Gebrielle Kennedy, Marsha Simon, and Viveka van de Vliet, about their business, vision, and inspirations, but also about the overarching GLUE theme, ‘The City is ours’, which is inspired by the fact that we are travelling less and fewer tourists are coming to Amsterdam, making the city and its economy ours again. The interviews will be about unusual ways of doing business, about Amsterdam as a self-sufficient ecosystem where designers, architects, showrooms, and brands work together.

A’DAM&Co., the members’ club for creatives, will again be offering the 18th floor of ADAM Toren as an exclusive location: a comfortable living room annex TV studio with a phenomenal view, where you can have lunch, drink coffee, and attend the talks that are being recorded and broadcast.

The GLUE TV broadcasts can be attended at A’DAM&Co. and can also be followed via livestreams and on Amsterdam television channel SALTO.

The City is Ours!
