The 10th edition of Clerkenwell Design Week (CDW) attracted a reported 34,185 visitors from 66 countries, generating significant leads over the three-day festival.
More than 200 brands exhibited across seven venues and in excess of 100 showrooms, further cementing the festival as a key event on the international design calendar.
Daren Newton, MD of Clerkenwell Design Week, comments: “The 10th edition of Clerkenwell Design Week (CDW) was the celebration of a decade spent in EC1 and has been the most successful edition yet. The excitement around CDW’s 10th birthday created an increase in visitor numbers as well as more A&D attendees than ever before, highlighting the festival’s importance on the global design scene. The various projects and street spectacles as part of CDW Presents demonstrated CDW’s flourishing growth over the past 10 years, working in synergy with the natural expansion of Clerkenwell as an area full of creativity. Following this important milestone I am personally very excited about what the future holds for both the festival and the area as London's creative heart.”
This year’s festival focused on its 10-year celebration and the history of Clerkenwell, with installations Once Upon A Time and Decade. Turning Clerkenwell pink for the three days, the wayfinding route refined the visitor experience and helped people access the extensive combination of exhibitions, showrooms, fringe partners, installations and live events.
