About DDA

Dutch Digital Agencies (DDA) connects and represents the best digital agencies in the Netherlands. Together, we keep making the world around us just that little bit smarter. Step-by-step, click-by-click. 

Digital agencies help companies and public institutions to better serve their users. With an app, for example, or a digital platform. But that’s just the start. Because we just keep on smartifying. With more intuitive buttons, more personal login screens, and new functionalities. And always based on the latest technologies. This kind of step-by-step smartifying underscores the kind of progress that benefits millions of people in the Netherlands, every day. From a banking app to a dating app, and from a data-driven insurance policy to a digital healthcare provider.

DDA brings together the Netherlands’ best smartifiers

DDA has been connecting leading digital agencies since 2002. We pool our expertise and experiences, inspire with fresh ideas and digital applications and keep showing what we are capable of. Collectively, we are strengthening our fast-growing sector and developing tomorrow’s budding talents. We take great pride in our knowledge and our work. And we enjoy talking about it too, at events and in the media. With 140 members, we represent the best of what the Dutch digital industry has to offer. We are conceivers and creators, designers and coders, testers and smartifiers. Flexible teams with flexible thinkers. Always looking for the next solution.
