The number one B2B meeting place for the funeral industry

The VTU Uitvaart Vakbeurs (VTU Funeral Industry Trade Fair) is organised once every four years in the Netherlands. This is done at the initiative of the Vereniging Toeleveranciers voor de Uitvaartbranche (Association of Suppliers for the Funeral Industry), or VTU. The goal of the VTU Uitvaart Vakbeurs is to bring together as many different business disciplines as possible from the (international) funeral industry and to promote potential collaborations.

(Inter)national Appeal

Thanks to collaborations with various trade fair organisations abroad, the VTU Uitvaart Vakbeurs is increasingly gaining international recognition. For example, in 2016 the fair had no fewer than 25 international exhibitors and almost 7% of visitors came from abroad, including from Belgium, Germany, and England.

The Vereniging Toeleveranciers voor de Uitvaartbranche (VTU)

The VTU is an interest group for suppliers that supply to funeral directors, cemeteries, crematoriums, and mortuaries. The objective of the VTU is to represent the interests of its members and to promote their work in the field of supplies for the funeral industry and/or funeral services. The VTU was founded on 24 December 1993 and currently has around 100 members. The strength of the VTU is that it acts as a point of contact for many suppliers and organisations and represents the sector as a whole. VTU members are constantly kept informed about developments within the industry, which is made possible through mutual exchange of information. This is an important added value. Not only do members regularly receive newsletters, the VTU website ( also plays an important role in providing information.
