Where Will Brussels Take You?

In collaboration with Brussels Invest & Export in London, Visit Brussels organized a networking reception on the theme "Where Will Brussels Take You?" on 12th of September 2017 at the residence of the Ambassador of Belgium in London. The event was held under the patronage and in presence of Mr Rudi Vervoort, Minister-President of Brussels-Capital Region. It was a good opportunity to connect some thirty people active in Tourism & MICE with travel trade experts and partners coming from Brussels.

 

The main aim of the event was to attract top-line UK Tour Operators, OTAs and tourism in-market influencers (British and international established in Greater London) to maintain and potentially increase outbound travellers to Brussels, mainly in the context of post Brexit.
