34,973 visitors attended London’s premier design festival. Visitors came from over 70 countries, mixing with exhibitors drawn from more than 20 countries. 65% of the visitors to CDW were architects or designers, confirming the importance of CDW for London’s creative sector and delivered through a unique format, including eight exhibition venues, over 150 local businesses and a series of original site-specific installations, with over 400 events.

William Knight, Show Director of Clerkenwell Design Week, said: “It has been a sensational year for Clerkenwell Design Week with a completely new layout and the introduction of exciting new venues, such as the iconic Fabric nightclub and Design Fields near Exmouth Market. The campaign ‘covered’ by Parallel, new way-finding and a strong set of installations all contributed to a memorable and transitional edition of the show. We know Clerkenwell is a dynamic and significant part of London’s design economy – our ambition is for CDW to reflect this and express this in new and original ways. The layout for the show has created a unique experience, and one which we believe will allow for sustained growth in the future.”
