With over 60 participating agencies we can imagine it’s hard to choose where to go. To help you out a bit, here’s a suggested route through the city center. As there are a lot of agencies located in the center, this is one of two routes. Park your bike and go on foot as these agencies are super close to each other.
Want to know exactly what is going on in the field of younger generations, culture, brands and music? Then a visit to Herengracht 433 is a must.

At 180 Amsterdam, you’re welcomed to the jungle, as they were inspired by it. When acclaimed film director Francis Ford Coppola experienced production challenges while making Apocalypse Now in the Cambodian jungle, he uttered these famous words: “Whenever you get into trouble, keep going. Do a 180 degree turn. Turn the situation halfway round. Don’t look for the secure solution. Don’t pull back from the passion. Turn it on full force.” Go on an advertising safari in the jungle of 180 Amsterdam.
Move up a canal and cross the road to visit SuperHeroes. SuperHeroes is a digitally born and raised global ad agency on an ambitious mission: to save the world from boring advertising. Advertising sometimes feels like “selling hot air”, as we say in Dutch. SuperHeroes are more into flying high. Get ready for a night of floating, jumping, blowing and flying-high-as-a-kite-without-parachute-fun.
