CEVA Logistics and MECC Maastricht have been working together for more than 20 years and this new five-year contract will run until end-2025. This agreement expands on a previous three-year agreement and highlights their common commitment to the future, the two say.
The agreement specifies that for all MECC Maastricht events, CEVA Logistics is the preferred logistics supplier, and will provide forklift services, storage, Customs, on-site supervision and will have dedicated, experienced personnel based at MECC to oversee the entire process.
CEVA says planning is already underway for a major event planned for 2021 – TEFAF Maastricht (organised by the European Fine Art Foundation). Widely regarded as the world’s premier fair for fine art, antiques, and design, it will feature many prestigious dealers from dozens of countries and is a showcase for the finest artworks currently on the market.
Alongside the traditional areas of Old Master paintings, antiques, and classical antiquities that cover approximately half of the fair, the event will also feature modern and contemporary art, photography, jewelry, 20th-century design and works on paper.
“The events and exhibition industry has been hit particularly hard by the global pandemic,” notes CEVA Logistics’ managing director Showfreight, Sharon Robinson. “It’s great to have some positive news from our long-term partners at Maastricht in the shape of this new expanded contract. The commitment of both teams to maintain a stable future for the industry and to already be working to welcome back important events is a signal of hope for all of us”.
MECC Maastricht has over 30 years of experience in hosting and organising international conferences and exhibitions.
