ADE Conference will take place in an online-first format, combining an extended digital program with limited physical networking elements:
As travel to Amsterdam is limited for most of the broader international B2B audience, our 2020 conference program will take place as an online-focused format. As always, we will combine panels, masterclasses and interactive Q&As with an extensive networking platform that enables ADE delegates to connect and meet up, both virtually as well as in real life. Details on the conference program and networking possibilities will follow in the coming weeks, so make sure to register in advance to be the first to hear about our updates.

The shape of ADE Festival is still uncertain at this point, but we aim to deliver the best possible ADE experience while respecting public health and government guidelines:

As the interpretations and consequences of the countermeasures by the Dutch government are still unclear for a city-wide event such as ADE, the festival’s exact shape is currently uncertain. Clearly, the normal size and scope of the festival make it seriously challenging to ensure everyone’s health and safety, and so we are continuously reevaluating the situation in close cooperation with the government. For now, we remain committed to offer you a suited and responsible solution and we will update you as soon as possible.

The Amsterdam Dance Event Foundation is the umbrella over the entire festival program however the line-up and production is arranged by the official ADE venue itself. We therefore recommend you to contact them directly to check if they have interest and availability.

Usually we have an showcase application form online in order to facilitate the process of connecting supply and demand. Artists who fill in this form will be added to a database which bookers and event promoters use to book artists for ADE. Since the showcase application is primarily focused on offline performances we’ve decided not to post this (yet) in light of the recent COVID-19 outbreak.

If you are interested in partnering up with ADE, feel free to send a proposal to our team at partnerships@amsterdam-dance-event.nl

There are no volunteer positions available for this (online) edition.
