Conference venue


The Maastricht Exhibition & Congress Centre (MECC) is an ultramodern, dynamic organization that organizes and provides accommodation for fairs, conferences and major cultural and sporting events.
The MECC Maastricht's greatest attraction is that it has been designed for multifunctional use. It has everything you need under one roof: conference and exhibition facilities, of course, but also places to wine, dine and sleep. Whether you're organizing a conference, a product presentation, a trade fair, a corporate gala or a combination of the above, the versatile MECC Maastricht can provide just the made-to-measure facilities and services you want.

Maastricht is situated in the heart of Europe, surrounded by Belgium and Germany and close to France. Maastricht, the most southern city in the Netherlands, is very easy to reach by car, train or airplane. Maastricht is also easy to reach from various airports (Brussels, Liège, Cologne and Düsseldorf), all of which are within a one-hour drive from the city.

Maastricht has two railway stations: Central and Randwyck (250 m from MECC Maastricht). The connection with major European cities is very good thanks to the Maastricht-Brussels express. Quickly and comfortably, you can travel to or from Brussels in less than 75 minutes. Paris in less than 3 hours (combine with Thalys), and London in just over 4 hours (combine with Europstar).
