Largest European maintenance conference, EuroMaintenance, comes to Rotterdam Ahoy in 2023

The largest European maintenance conference will eventually be held in Rotterdam from 17 to 19 April 2023. Covid-19 threw a spanner in the earlier plans, but the Dutch Maintenance Society (NVDO), the European Federation of National Maintenance Societies (EFNMS) and Rotterdam Ahoy will combine forces again. At the same time, Rotterdam Ahoy will be hosting the largest technology and maintenance exhibition in the Benelux from 18 to 20 April 2023 Maintenance NEXT. During this period, this powerful combination will make Rotterdam the European meeting place for maintenance professionals in the industry.


"EuroMaintenance consists of various components, such as the conference and the workshops. It is obvious that we have chosen the Rotterdam Ahoy Convention Centre, as congress visitors can also visit the Maintenance NEXT exhibition and learn about the innovations and the people behind the innovations. For the exhibitors is it interesting to meet a new, high level international audience," says Ellen den Broeder, NVDO General Manager. The combination of the NVDO, the EFNMS and Rotterdam Ahoy guarantees a high-quality international congress that can finally take place after the pandemic and years of preparation. Den Broeder: "We are really looking forward to connecting the maintenance world in this way".


"When we got the opportunity to combine our Maintenance NEXT exhibition with EuroMaintenance, we did not hesitate a moment." says Pieter Bas Dujardin, exhibition manager of Maintenance NEXT. During the exhibition, more than 250 national and international exhibitors will present the most important innovations in the field of (industrial) maintenance on the exhibition floor, which is visited by more than 11,000 visitors every two years. Dujardin explains: "To add such a well-known conference with international top speakers to the exhibition is a great opportunity and makes Rotterdam the maintenance capital of 2023.”.
