Merckt is the future place to be for drinks, food and meet-ups. During MXT, we transform Merckt to the MXT Hideout. In this hideout we provide a place to do your meetings, listen to music, to drink your coffee or listen to live podcasts. The MXT is a tradition during ESNS. A place where music meets tech. A place where companies and investors meet.

The Martini Church


The Martini Church is the perfect setting to kick off the MXT dinner. Not only is it the oldest church in the city of Groningen, but its beautiful wall and vault paintings and magnificent Schnitger organ make it a true architectural masterpiece and a cultural highlight of the city. It is an honor to be able to start the MXT dinner in such a historic and awe-inspiring location.
