Our (r)evolution


As the business world continues to transform, we continue to adapt the ways in which we support our members.

The speed with which technological developments emerge today, further increases the necessity for a network that helps our members identify the right opportunities. 


Business trends and technologies guided our evolution into a mature organisation. Our platform began to attract companies and organisations from various segments and regions. This encouraged us to expand our perspective beyond ICT and open our activities, including knowledge exchange and networking opportunities, to a broad professional audience. Consequently, our motto was adapted to: ‘Where business and ICT meet’


By 2005, our founders had inspired numerous other partners and members from all over Belgium to join Antwerp Digital Mainport. Given this increased diversity, our Board of Directors decided to change our name into ADM, leaving the ‘A’ as a reminder of where it all started. At the same time, the motto ‘Sharing IT’ was introduced


A visit to the Information Technology Center in New York triggered our founding fathers (the Antwerp Chamber of Commerce, Agfa-Gevaert, Ahlers, EDS, McKinsey & Company, Real Software, Telenet, Uitgeversbedrijf Tijd and Xylos) to set up a forum for ICT knowledge exchange and consultation. 

And so on 3 June, 1998, ‘Antwerp Digital Mainport’ (ADM) was founded.
