Originally announced as Antverpiade 2020, the exhibition was scheduled for August 2020, in order to coincide with the Tokyo Olympics (Olympiade) and commemorate the centenary of the Antwerp Olympics. It was postponed to June 2021 and because of the ongoing pandemic was postponed again to June 2022, when renamed to ANTVERPIA 2022.
