Welcome Meet&Greet Maastricht - April

24-04-2014 - 24-04-2014

On the day of the event, you will be welcomed with coffee, tea and local pastries (Limburgian vlaai) at the Stadhuis at 15:00 o' clock. The official programme starts with a short informal introduction in an international atmosphere at one of the most beautiful locations of Maastricht: the Stadhuis, the old town hall in the middle of the market square. During the afternoon you will get to know other international professionals new to the area, become aware of cultural differences and learn something about the Dutch culture. Afterwards you will meet up with the region's International Community at the monthly Meet & Greet Maastricht. We will take a 30 minutes walk to the Meet & Greet location with a guide, showing you some of the beautiful sights of Maastricht.
