How we help

There are many things to be considered when organising a conference, including bidding procedures, marketing & promotion but also venue choices and program composition. The Utrecht Convention Bureau can advise you about the possibilities that Utrecht has to offer every step of the way. Together, we will make your conference a great success.

“Our collaboration with the UCB delivered huge added value and was one of the reasons why our conference was such a success.”

'I look back with satisfaction on a successful symposium at Woudschoten Hotel & Conference Centre in Zeist. The UCB was really helpful to us. They helped us prepare our bid, organise an impressive site inspection and, of course, with organising the symposium itself.”

Chair van het 14e International Symposium on Human Chlamydial Infections
