Maastricht Convention Bureau Scores High at Evaluation

The Maastricht & region visit by 19 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 9.3 for organisation and 8.7 (out of 10) for the programme as 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. The effect is far more substantial than a meeting at the client’s office or at a fair. Attendees are able to feel, taste and literally 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, there are several attendees who have actually requested a quotation from our participants. The next site visit is already on our agenda: in December, during Magical Maastricht."

"Site visits are organised to show the city of Maastricht and its region to planners of corporate meetings. Via the Maastricht Convention Bureau, participants work together to promote Maastricht & region, in The Netherlands and abroad, as a destination for conventions and corporate meetings. This way, planners are able to experience the possibilities of the city when it comes to conventions and meetings and the region is on their top of minds again as a destination for corporate meetings.”
