chequeIn the evening of June 24th 2014, the ‘Maaspoort’ Theater hosted the closing celebration of GEBA Galibier; a project conceived on a late evening that became the ultimate team building activity.

We are proud to inform you that the Venlo-Venray region has once again won the first prize in the election for Logistics Hotspot in het Netherlands. It hardly seems a coincidence that our region has won this prize for the seventh consecutive time! Of the six criteria used to weigh all applicants, the Venlo-Venray region obtained the highest possible score in four of them, according to a panel of 25 experts.
