Not only the general public but also trade press and sponsors are visiting Manifestations. Manifestations is an opportunity to enrich your network and do fruitful business.
Last year, our second year running this event, we were more successful than ever in attracting potential customers to Eindhoven. Besides, we catch the attention of many well-known sponsors. Last year our main sponsor was ABN AMRO, alone it took over 1500 business to explore.

Nowadays it seems the tendency is increasing because the number of companies interested in seeing creativity and innovation is higher and higher.
More companies than ever are understanding that creativity is an essential ingredient in their business innovation cycle and correspondingly, they are attracted to visiting this event. On the other hand, we work in convincing them about the importance of integrating designers in their processes from day one.

In this way, all participants are covered by a curated program. Viola van Alphen is the professional curator in charge of promoting the quality of the exhibitors and impact of the total program.
