Antwerp may be the diamond capital of Europe, yet it also has emerged at the epicenter of a Belgian news media scene that sparkles in a dusty swirl of pandemic tailwinds and economic headwinds.
In an extraordinary dive into the hidden gem of Europe’s ambitious and resurgent media scene, INMA Media Innovation Week in Antwerp will embrace the ethos of our host city: creative, aspirational, bold, bustling … a blend of old and modern to create something entirely new.
You will learn why two of Belgium’s leading media companies have relocated to Antwerp, embracing a culture you have to experience for yourself. You will learn why Antwerp inspires passion.
Attend INMA Antwerp in September:
They say that diamonds are forever. So how can the modern media brand gain some of that luster?
Attend INMA Antwerp for this once-a-generation opportunity to learn for yourself.

Why did INMA select Antwerp for its 2023 Media Innovation Week?
When Mediahuis and DPG Media — Europe’s fastest-growing news media companies — relocated to Antwerp in recent years, it shifted the creative center of news media in Western Europe. They expanded beyond Belgium to The Netherlands, Denmark, Luxembourg, Germany, Ireland, and more.
As a bonus, Antwerp offers intangibles that are hard to beat: the most Michelin star restaurants per capita in the world (12), avant-garde fashion, deep-rooted cultural and historical institutions, world-class window shopping, a diamond district second to none, great nightlife, and more.
Why not Antwerp?
