For a destination like Brussels, it is very important to be present on international fairs and workshops, to meet potential clients, to reinforce Brussels ‘ image, and to create business opportunities for you and our partners from the private sector.
Geographically, the priority markets will remain Belgium’s neighboring countries, with the bulk of our actions programmed in France, Germany and UK. Overseas countries will not be forgotten as we have registered great results and the numbers of visitors from USA, China, India, etc. keep rising.
