MaterialDistrict (formerly Material Xperience) is the leading material innovation event for R&D and design professionals and takes place from 17-19 March 2020 in Rotterdam Ahoy, the Netherlands.

What can you expect?

Novelties from well-known brands

A number of well-known brands introduce their new material innovations during MaterialDistrict Rotterdam to the public. More than 200 material manufacturers from all sectors of spatial design (interior, architecture, garden & landscape, leisure, furniture & interior construction, and exhibition, stage & decor) will exhibit their novelties. The ‘state of the art’ is exactly what you will find while visiting MaterialDistrict Rotterdam 2020.

Independent expo

Where in previous years the event was divided into sectors, this year, the visitor is encouraged to roam free between all exhibitors for spatial design, promoting cross-pollination. To make sure you see everything, one can follow the so-called ‘Innovation Route’ in which the most innovative materials in the form of an experience are shown.

During the visit to the leading material innovation event for R&D and design professionals, the visitor can of course also enjoy an exhibition of the 250 newest materials in MaterialDistrict’s independent collection.

Sensational lecture programme

MaterialDistrict is known for her sensational lecture programme in which reputable (inter)national architects, scientists, designers and other experts share their latest material developments and visions with the public. For the first time in the fair’s history, last year’s edition had two speaker line-ups simultaneously in which the speakers shared their knowledge with the visitors.
