MECC Maastricht is a conference and convention center that hosts conferences, fairs and exhibitions, and a variety of cultural and sporting events. There are four exhibition halls covering a total area of nearly 30,000 square meters, two conference centers, an auditorium with a 1700-seat capacity and 2,200 parking spaces.
The current parking management system didn't allow the use of time-restricted parking, flexible parking rates, granting discounts, and parking based on license-plate scanning. The MECC venue also wished to improve the efficiency of peak-time traffic, including before and after events. Making parking spaces available to the staff of the nearby Maastricht University Hospital and Maastricht University was also one of the requirements of the new parking solution.
