Getting to APEX and getting around.

By Maria Hadlow05 September 2011

Maastricht is easy to reach being well supplied with airports, train stations and auto-routes. Once you are in the city it also very easy to get around.

You can reach the exhibition by plane, train, bus and car.

By Plane

There are several airports serving Maastricht including:

Maastricht-Aachen Airport, 10 kilometres from the Fair and only 15 minutes away by car, taxi or bus.

Zaventem Airport Brussels, from which the organisers run a free shuttle bus on Sept 13, 14, 15 and 16.

In the central Arrival Hall of Brussels Airport, APEX 2011 has its own counter. Just contact the hostess, who will personally direct you to the bus.
