Dutch city gets high rating from corporate planners

Maastricht (pictured) and its surrounding region was visited by 33 international planners of corporate meetings during the TEFAF, the world’s biggest antique and art fair, and was highly rated by the participants. 

Meetings planners on the site visit, which was organised by the Maastricht Convention Bureau (MCB), rate ‘organisation’ 9.7 and the ‘programme[ and 9.6 out of 10. 

“We are actually pretty proud about the result,” said  MCB’s sales manager, meetings and incentives, Tamara Piatkiewitz-Weide.


“We have deliberately organised the site visit to take place during the TEFAF, so we could show how a big event like that influences the city in a positive way. One attendee said visiting the city during such a major event gave a greater idea of the possibilities available. The attendee in question, who organisers an event for around 1.650 guests, has since asked for a quotation for holding it in Maastricht.” 

The MCB organises several site visits a year, in cooperation with its partners. It finds them far more effective than simply meeting at the client’s office or at a trade fair. “Attendees are able to feel, taste and literally see the diverse possibilities when it comes to conventions, incentives and meetings,” said Piatkiewitz-Weide.
