Conference facilities

Brightlands has conference facilities at both campuses. The facilities at the Chemelot Campus are provided and run in-house. The facilities at the Maastricht Health Campus are provided in a long-standing partnership with the Maastricht Exhibition and Congress Center (MECC). The Maastricht Health Campus is the only health campus in Europe with its own conference facilities.

MECC Maastricht comprises three multifunctional floors, two auditoriums that can be combined into one, an Expo Foyer, and three expo halls. In total MECC Maastricht offers 30,000 square meters of space. MECC Maastricht's preferred suppliers include Maison van den Boer for catering, and Houben Media Techniek for audiovisual solutions. See the MECC Maastricht website for more information.

Conference organizers

Brightlands works closely with a number of professional conference organizers to help our tenants and others with their conferences at either of the campuses. Conference organizers are responsible for the partial or full organization of conferences, ranging from conference management and participant registration to abstract-handling and location and transport logistics, conference promotion, sponsorship funds, speaker coordination, and financial settlement and administration.

Brightlands works closely with:

  • Klinkhamer Conference Management
  • Pauwels Congress Organisers
