By 1 September 2020September 30th, 2020No Comments

Maastricht is the ideal place to organize live, hybrid, or completely virtual conferences. It is a safe and compact city, and thanks to its central location in Europe it is a short and easy trip regardless of where you are traveling from. We ensure that hygiene and safety are our highest priority, therefore the city of Maastricht has now implemented special COVID-19 protected pedestrian routes for visitors to follow when navigating the city. As for conferencing, the Maastricht Exhibition & Conference Center (MECC) offers you adequate space and flexibility to perfectly organize business meetings while maintaining a social distance of 1.5 meters between attendees. Additionally, Maastricht offers virtual solutions, providing tailor-made audio-visual proposals that fit your program needs.

► COVID-19 Protected Pedestrian routes – Hygiene and Safety first in Maastricht
How can we provide a safe tour in the city of Maastricht? Maastricht, famously the oldest Roman city in the Netherlands, like many other cities worldwide, had deserted streets but is now slowly flourishing again. Of course, we are still extremely careful. Health and Safety are a high priority, as such, we have implemented COVID-19 pedestrian routes.
