The visit.brussels Awards 2021 comprises 6 categories:
BEST CREATIVE ALTERNATIVE
This award recognises the best initiative taken in response to the health crisis that allowed the tourism partner/actor to continue their activity by offering a new proposition but maintaining their DNA.
E.g.: a club, bar or restaurant that held an exhibition, a takeaway service or DIY, etc.
AUDACIOUS NEW PROJECT
This award recognises an audacious new concept or venue launched in the midst of the crisis.
E.g.: the launch of a new concept, offer, restaurant, exhibition, etc.
This award recognises the best individual or collective initiative to help people in need.
E.g.: housing for the homeless, food collection points for the disadvantaged, etc.
This award recognises the initiative which, despite the challenging context of the health crisis, has best contributed to reducing its environmental impact by questioning the way it operates.
E.g.: zero-waste initiatives, companies that decided to use only ethical Brussels bicycle delivery services, etc.
This award recognises the best collaborative initiative between partners created in the context of the health crisis.
E.g.: initiatives organised by several museums, the incorporation of concepts or works from other museums, the creation of joint products between a number of local companies to support the sector, etc.
BRUSSELS ON STAGE
This award recognises the initiative which, through its very existence, has enabled Brussels to shine on the national and/or international scene. E.g.: an initiative that has made a name for itself beyond our borders.
