And of course, MaterialDistrict will also display the 200 newest materials from its independent collection; printed roof tiles, a composite material made of marble dust and oysters, paving stones made from burned waste, as well as 197 other innovations that can all be seen, felt and experienced at the fair.

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.
