We are building a strong ecosystem


Communities

Within the program, (existing) communities are of great importance, both physically and digitally. Communities provide a platform for inspiration and are a source of collaboration. Informing, inspiring and initiating are therefore central.

At the moment there are, among others, three communities already active: Leisure Lab Limburg and Inspirerend Limburg and Entrepreneurs Network Tourist Limburg. We are closely aligned with them with this program.

But we also work closely with the following network partners from the Tourism and Recreation sector in Limburg: Visit Zuid-Limburg, Maastricht Marketing, Limburg Marketing, Visit Noord-Limburg, Hiswa-Recron, Koninklijke Horeca Nederland and the Maastricht Convention Bureau

Events

Various events are organized around current themes, both physically (if permitted) and online. Think of current themes such as sustainability, health and digitization. The starting point is the dissemination and sharing of knowledge by and with companies. But the insights of knowledge institutions and other relevant organizations are also used.

Collective programs

Collective programs are organized several times a year. These programs consist of several master classes for groups of entrepreneurs who work together on specific issues. These programs are organized both online and physically (to the extent permitted).

Corona Rebuild Program Toerisme & Recreatie
The first collective program is the Corona Rebuild Program Tourism & Recreation whose first edition has already taken place at the end of 2020. This program supports a group of entrepreneurs, active in the tourism and recreation sector, to search for new sources of income and create a mindset to discover new market opportunities. A total of 6 weekly plenary master classes are organized with a different theme or assignment each time. In addition, each entrepreneur receives individual guidance from a business developer.
