2022 highlights

Sustainability during La Vuelta Holanda Sustainability during La Vuelta Holanda Jaarbeurs was the official start location for the first stage of the team time trial during the 2022 La Vuelta Holanda. Just like us, La Vuelta Holanda is committed to sustainability. And that meant great strides ahead on that front.
Valuable encounters Valuable encounters After two years of inactivity, in 2022 we were able to get back to doing what we do best: creating valuable encounters. We organised trade fairs at home and abroad, facilitated guest events, developed platforms and launched new concepts.
Jaarbeurs Live app Jaarbeurs Live app By combining our experience and knowledge with the latest digital technologies, we added value to our events. We rolled out the Jaarbeurs Live app across the board and introduced an online event platform.
2022 UFI Sustainable Development Award 2022 UFI Sustainable Development Award Jaarbeurs won the 2022 UFI Sustainability Award both for making the range of food and beverages we offer more sustainable and for the way we combat food waste. Through various projects within Food & Food Waste, we cut carbon emissions with the ultimate goal of becoming carbon-neutral and, ideally, even carbon-positive.
