Conference Venue & Welcome Reception 

MECC Maastricht is a relatively new conference centre, opened in 1988. We are build according to the fourth generation concept, which means you can hold your conference or exhibition here, wine and dine your delegates and offer them overnight accommodation all under the same roof. MECC Maastricht is equipped with two main Auditoria, one for 1058 pax and one Auditorium for 592 pax, which can be combined to one plenary room of 1,650 pax. Around the main Auditorium we have 24 break out rooms varying in capacity from 6 – 350 pax. These rooms are divided over two different levels and very accessible from the main registration area.
