The people who take your work off your hands
We love Groningen!
Groningen has stolen our hearts. We love the Grote Markt, Herestraat, the canals, courtyards and parks. We know all of the beautiful spots in Groningen. That's why we know where to find the best locations, restaurants and excursions for you!
What drive us?
As a team - consisting mainly of down-to-earth, hardworking and solution-oriented women - we all love to work towards something. We're perfectionists, we love to tick off do's and we embrace commotion. But we also like to be able to contribute to science with our services, by doing what we are good at: facilitating valuable congresses.
How did Groningen Congres Bureau come into being?
In 1996, Stichting Groningen Congres Bureau was an initiative of the University of Groningen (RUG) and the Municipality of Groningen. In addition to these two initiators, three more partners have been added: the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG), Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen and the Province of Groningen. GCB functions as an independent and autonomous company.
What do we stand for?
A deal is a deal with us. We also think it is important to listen carefully and to be subservient. We strive for the best version of your congress, don't stop until everything has been taken care of down to the last detail and are happy to go the extra mile to make our clients more than satisfied.
Together we form a team
The bond with you as our client is very important to us. You become part of our team for a while, we truly do it together. The only difference is: you are at the helm while we work hard behind the scenes to get everything done. Teamwork!
