The festival featured sessions by:

Never before the Dutch creative industry presented such a melting pot of the most inspiring past, present and future creators. An eclectic program of innovative labs, inspirational masterclasses and intimate bedroom sessions were scheduled in a two-day festival. It enabled visitors to learn how creativity makes impact, how the best creative work is being made, and how you can grow as a creative professional, team or company.

For the first time, there was an equivalent of D&AD Festival in London, Us by Night in Antwerpen and Creative Week in New York. ADCN and The Student Hotel aim to unite creative masters, professionals, talents, educators, curators and companies across all disciplines, creating a unique melting pot and opportunity for boundary-crossing creative collaborations.

About The Student Hotel

The Student Hotel concept started with one simple observation: that students deserve better. Today, that vision has become reality and grown to encompass all guests with a “student spirit”. From design-savvy travellers to next-gen entrepreneurs, TSH welcomes thousands of guests annually to its expanding portfolio of urban campus-style properties across Europe. Purpose-built or housed in historic converted buildings, TSH’s industry-leading concept provides blended spaces to learn, stay, work and play for a night, a week, a month or a year.

TSH is on a journey to remain as responsible and impactful as possible – both in how we build our hotels and engage with our communities. Our properties are developed and managed in accordance with international ESG standards, and through our programming we aim to inspire and activate our communities to contribute to a fairer and greener world.

Founded in 2012, TSH is headquartered in Amsterdam and has 650 employees. All TSH properties offer a mixed-use campus with accommodation, bars, restaurants, gyms, retail shops, meeting and event spaces and high-profile, co-working space. With over 11,000 rooms in Europe open and under development, TSH aims to offer a unique experience to its community of international guests. As of today, TSH is operating in 15 European locations: two hotels in Amsterdam and in Barcelona and one in Berlin, The Hague, Delft, Vienna, Groningen, Eindhoven, Maastricht, Rotterdam, Paris, Florence and Bologna. TSH’s total locations amount to 25 hotels, with 15 open, three opening this year and seven more by 2025.
