Clerkenwell is home to more creative businesses and architects per square mile than anywhere else on the planet, making it truly one of the most important design hubs in the world. 

To celebrate this rich and diverse community, CDW has created a showcase of leading UK and international brands and companies presented in a series of showroom events, pop-up exhibitions and special installations that take place across the area. 

Having just finished it's 5th year, running 20-22 May 2014, the award-winning* CDW has firmly established itself as the UK's leading independent design festival and annually attracts the international design community to this small area of London for three days of exciting events.

In 2013, the design community flocked to Clerkenwell with over 50,000 registered attendees and over 250 exhibiting brands. Detailed statistics for 2014 will be relased shortly.
