Want to do something else during or around your congress? 
We are happy to show your guests how beautiful Groningen and the Netherlands are!


Participants often like to see some of the city of Groningen or the Netherlands during the congress. Organising this takes a lot of time. That is why we are happy to take care of arranging excursions for the participants for you.

At a congress, the days are often long and intensive. There is lots of talking, listening and networking. That's why it can also be nice to offer your participants a social event.

Perhaps you also feel the need to show them how beautiful Groningen is and to break up the long congress days a bit. But to arrange all that on top of the congress is something you really don’t need.

We will gladly take care of this for you, by putting together - within the possibilities of your congress - a nice excursion programme for your guests. Think of a boat trip, a guided city walk, a climb of the Martini Tower or a bike ride through nature. That makes your congress an experience not to be forgotten for a while! Moreover, we take care of the whole thing - from selecting excursions to the payment.
