In these unusual times, consultation, coordination and the exchange of ideas and best practices remain essential to rebuild tourism in Brussels over the coming months, be it for business or leisure.

  • Targeted campaigns, flexible objectives, different paces

    The campaigns, initiatives and implementation of the Recovery Plan will continue to vary and evolve to meet the health measures in place in Belgium and elsewhere in the world. More specifically:

     

    • Providing a common framework for stakeholders in the business and cultural tourism sectors;
    • working with all partners;
    • identifying the needs of the sector and providing assistance with available resources;
    • reflecting on medium and long-term possibilities and strategies.

     

    The recovery plan includes measures that can be taken immediately, or will be able to be taken when the health crisis subsides. Other campaigns and initiatives are planned for the longer term. This recovery plan anticipates a phased return of visitors.

     

    Voluntary participation, transversal reflections

    visit.brussels launched the call and it is still receiving responses. After the first online meetings, several participants pointed to the willingness to cooperate and the positive dynamic of the exchanges.
