Capital of the province of Limburg, Netherlands, Maastricht has a beautiful setting along both banks of the River Maas. It is one of the Netherland’s busiest commercial and tourist centers, and the signing of the Maastricht Treaty in 1992 saw the city become the symbol of the European Union.
Why exhibit there?
Maastricht is ambitious and wants to become an economic hub in a culturally and economically attractive region. It has an increasingly vibrant atmosphere, and is the ideal place to undertake projects in the commercial or non-commercial sector.
Once you land at Maastricht Aachen Airport, you can get downtown via the Arriva bus line 30 (Maastricht-Sittard).
