visit.brussels is actively preparing the post-COVID-19 era and regularly brings together a whole range of representatives from the events sector, the tourism industry and international associations.
Here you’ll find the upcoming events:
- 11 February 2021 from 14:00 to 15:00: Presentation of the 2021 Recovery plan
- Find HERE the presentations to download.
- Tuesday 9 March 2021 from 10:30 to 12:00: Online information session on the European Union's Creative Europe and Europe for Citizens support programmes with the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles
- Thursday 18 March from 14:00 to 15:00: Online partners meeting discussing the status of the recovery plan, initial projects & spring campaign.
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.
