Maastricht Convention Bureau Scores High Evaluation

The Maastricht & Region visit by 33 international and national planners of corporate meetings during the TEFAF, the world’s biggest antique and art fair, was highly rated by the participants. The Maastricht Convention Bureau, organiser of the site visit scored 9.7 in “organisation” and 9.6 (in a scale out of 10) for the programme offered.

"We are actually pretty proud about that," said Tamara Piatkiewitz-Weide, Sales Manager, Meetings & Incentives.

The Maastricht Convention Bureau organises several site visits a year, in cooperation with its partners. According to the Bureau, it is far more effective than a meeting at the client’s office or at a fair. Attendees are able to feel, taste and see the diverse possibilities when it comes to conventions, incentives and meetings.

“We have deliberately chosen to let it take place during the TEFAF, so we could show how a big event like that influences the city in a positive way," said Piatkiewitz-Weide. “On the occasion of this site visit, one attendee let us know that he got a better picture of the possibilities for his event (1.650 guests) and there are some other attendees who have actually requested a quotation from our participants. The next two site visits are already on our agenda, during the André Rieu Vrijthof concerts and the culinary festival ‘t Preuvenemint.”
