With representatives from India’s fastest growing IT-hub Bangalore, innovation leader Baden-Württemberg, creative hotspot Catalonia, buzzing Central-Denmark  and many other regions, SuperNova will mark the 40th gathering of the international Districts of Creativity Network. 

The network, initiated by Flanders DC in 2004, unites 10 regions throughout the world that focus on creativity to foster innovation and prosperity. Every member region brings a high level delegation of entrepreneurs, innovation-experts, policy makers and regional representatives to SuperNova. SuperNova is a one-of-a-kind conference and festival in Antwerp (27-30 September) organised by Flanders DC and partners. Find out more at www.supernovafest.eu.

“The delegates not only have the opportunity to see some of the world’s top tech and innovative minds at work at the SuperNova conference, but can share and learn from other regions and countries across the world,” says DC network coordinator Carlo Vuijlsteke. At this year’s annual international council innovative projects and strategies will be exchanged and ways of cooperation discussed.

"SuperNova is a great opportunity to meet creative people from all over the world and to learn from their expertise and knowledge. Together with the delegates from Baden-Württemberg we are looking forward to get inspired and to bring back many fresh ideas to Baden-Württemberg and our creative scene," says Hanna Schaefer, project manager of Baden-Württemberg for the DC Network.

Next year’s gathering of the DC Network will take place in Noord-Brabant, during the Creativity World Forum 2019. Find out more about the DC Network at www.districtsofcreativity.org.
