Maastricht, the Netherlands

Maastricht is the ideal conference city in the heart of Europe. Quoting from Wikipedia: “The first permanent settlement was founded by the Celts about 500 BC. A Roman city was built around 0 AD, making Maastricht one of the oldest cities of the Netherlands”. The name Maastricht goes back to the Roman Empire name of the city “Mosa Trajectum”, meaning crossing of the Maas (Meuse) River.

With Belgium and Germany as its direct neighbours, Maastricht is only a short trip away no matter which way of travel you use. With eight airports nearby, good international train connections and excellent highway system, the city is easily accessible. Maastricht has a state of the art conference and exhibition centre MECC, 5600 hotel rooms and, most important, the right community and experience to facilitate international conferences with outstanding personal service.


We think that 2025 will be a Poultry Year !


Because from June 23 – 26, the 24th European Symposium on Poultry Nutrition will be held in Maastricht, a vibrant city in the South of the Netherlands, very close to the Belgian border.

The organisation of this Symposium is a combined effort of the Netherlands and Belgian branches of WPSA.

All worldwide poultry nutritionists from academia and industry are very much welcome to join this forum where future sustainable poultry nutrition and feeding will be discussed.

Poultry people do know each other and therefore it is you who cannot be missed at this Symposium.
Next to novel scientific findings, also the industry can show their current technical achievements.

We, as Organising Committee, are sure that key speakers from all over the world will inform our audience, thereby in particular having an eye for a prominent role for our young poultry scientists, the future of our industry.

We are looking forward to welcome you in Maastricht in 2025!

Spread the word!

On behalf of the Organising Committee,

Dr Evelyne Delezie and Dr René Kwakkel, co-chairs
