Les Amis GastrEUnomiquesFoodservice
Les Amis GastrEUnomiques (LAG) was founded in 2013 with the aim to provide a platform for Hospitality suppliers and entrepreneurs in the Meuse-Rhine Euregion. LAG currently owns 78 ‘Amis’. They meet each other every three months, 4 times a year. Share knowledge, gain insights into trends and market developments and inspire each other with Best Practice cases are the main goals of the platform. The final event takes place during BBB Maastricht in October every year.
Besides that, networking is always part of the program in order to create a strong basis for an informal networking platform. Moreover, the foundation has a strong bond and collaboration with the BBB in Maastricht, also known as the largest Euregional trade fair. During the three-day event, LAG hosts a networking square: Place des Amis, with a lounge exclusively for Amis, an academy with top speakers from the Euregio.
All events contain contrasting theme’s en programmes. In February LAG organises a ‘theme event’ like catering, out of home market and leisure & sports. In June the LAG Tour takes place. A trend tour with a hop-on hop-off bus idea along all kinds of businesses. In August, the Amis meet during the Preuvenemint in Maastricht. LAG organises a side-event where networking and sharing knowledge are central. The final event in October, takes place during BBB Maastricht. LAG hosts Place des Amis – where all Amis can take advantage of an exclusive lounge, can invite (new) business relations, Partners, Amis and friends.
It is not about what you know, but about who you know.
