We decided to start with a number of Whatsapp number database determining factors that were beyond our control. Are designers interested in participating in DDW? And is there enthusiasm among visitors to come to the event? If the answer to one Whatsapp number database of these questions is 'no', then you have quite a challenge as a multi-sided platform. By connecting these 2 drivers (enthusiasm to participate/visit enthusiasm), a quadrant was Whatsapp number database created with 4 possible realities for DDW20.
In addition, the regulations from the Whatsapp number database national and local governments were of course a determining factor. Scenario 1: physical event What if, within the COVID-19 guidelines, DDW could continue as a physical event? The scenario that we as an organization wanted to Whatsapp number database stick to as long as possible was a mini variant with an 'open studio' model. Participating designers would open the doors of their studios and we would provide ticketing Whatsapp number database based on time slots to limit the burden on the infrastructure of the city of Eindhoven as much as possible.
A bottom-up event like DDW is not easy to Whatsapp number database tame, so the number of participating designers and locations quickly crept towards a normal DDW. Until about two weeks in advance… The COVID infections in the Netherlands Whatsapp number database increased sharply again, after which the Mayor of Eindhoven, John Jorritsma, decided that he could not grant a permit for the physical event. That was a good and logical Whatsapp number database decision, but for us it automatically meant that we had to switch to the other scenarios at the last minute. A difficult decision with many consequences internally and externally.
