Mark your calendars: the fifth edition of CONNEXT takes place 4-7 October 2020 in Antwerp.

Both the new CONNEXT main venue and official hotel are walking distance from Antwerp’s Grand Central Station. Foreign guests will feel at home at the brand new NH Collection Antwerp Centre, located in the city’s famous Diamond Quarter. Featuring an abundance of greenery with refined decor, the hotel offers guests a stylish refuge from the bustle of the city. A budget-friendly option for participants is the adjacent A-Stay Hotel.

All projects, works-in-progress and keynotes will take place in the prestigious and spacious Flanders Meeting and Convention Center Antwerp (FMCCA), more precisely the Queen Elisabeth Hall and Atrium. FMCCA is also known as ‘Room With a ZOO’ because of its links with the adjacent zoo. It’ll offer you much more space to have quiet discussions with other participants.

Information on the new screening venue is to follow soon.

→ CONNEXT traditionally starts on Sunday with an informal ‘jetlag’ supper for its international guests. The supper follows a city discovery programme that usually starts around 3 pm. More information is to follow in the months to come. Plus: 4 October is also Shopping Sunday in Antwerp, with a large number of stores opening their doors from 12 noon-6 pm.
