The exposition ‘Greetings from Maastricht’ in facts and figures

From 11 November 2017 – 7 January 2018, you could step into the world of Maastricht’s makers and (re)discover the history of the oldest industrial city in the Netherlands during the exposition Greetings from Maastricht: a look at innovative entrepreneurship.



Students visiting the expo
  • The ‘Greetings from Maastricht’ expo attracted approximately 5000 visitors.
  • About half of these came to one of the sixty organised events.
  • The expo also introduced 550 students in secondary education and vocational education to the Maastricht makers scene, and they even got to visit a number of the makers at work.
  • The average visitor rating of the expo was 8.5 out of 10, and respondents called the expo informative, interesting and. above all, a real eye-opener.

Now that the expo is over, the website remains as a document. You can still take a look behind the scenes at Maastricht’s leading production companies and marvel at the products and services that are putting Maastricht on the global map.
