VIV Europe 2010 offers extra hospitality to visitors

Despite the considerable impact of the volcanic eruptions, VIV Europe 2010 takes place as scheduled from 20–22 April. So far, 85% of the exhibitors have been able to reach Utrecht in time.

“Especially now it is utmost important for the industry to show solidarity. All exhibitors share this opinion and will do everything to make a visit a valuable experience. The large number of innovations and introductions are unprecedented,” says Gerard Leeuwenburgh, Director International Exhibitions at VNU Exhibitions, “So we urge all industry professionals not to miss VIV Europe. If you’re not from overseas, Utrecht is easily accessible by train, bus or by car.”


The VIV team is responding to the current situation with several hospitality measures to limit the impact on visitors.

“We will guarantee a warm welcome to visitors who make the effort to come to VIV Europe,” said Leeuwenburgh. Parking at the Jaarbeurs venue is free of charge for visitors. Upon arrival, free coffee and croissants are served.

    I read with interest Mr Leeuwengurgh's comment that all exhibitors share his view. As an exhibiting company that has not been asked to give a view (which would have been that the huge cancellation of expectied important visitors for our company would force postponment or cancellation) I wonder if in fact exhibitor opinion was taken, and if so why opinion was not sought from all exhibitors?
