Familiarisation trip to Brussels & Wallonia
Brussels Invest & Export (BI&E) and Walloon Agency for Export & Invest (AWEX) jointly organised a familiarisation trip to Brussels and Wallonia in collaboration with The Production Guild in the United Kingdom.
This trip counted a group of ten representatives of the British production industry and had a two full days program including presentation of Belgian incentives (federal and regional), scout location tours, networking sessions and site visit of post-production companies. This instructive and joyful program was the result of close concertation between several players, namely: Brussels Invest & Export, AWEX, Screen.Brussels, Wallimage and Twist.
British producers participating to this trip had the opportunity to discuss administrative issues such as tax shelter, regional funds and incentives, access to the market, but also practical subjects related to production cost, location management, post-production abilities…
The interactive discussions during the different sessions and feedback received from participants reflected the interest and success of this trip.
