- Trade Bureau
How can we sell Brussels as a Tourism and Meeting destination? Part of the answer lies in the missions of the Sales team within VISITBRUSSELS.
The Sales team sees itself as responsible for one main mission, namely that of “selling” Brussels as a destination to the various potential buyers... Simple isn’t it? Those buyers may vary in nature: event agencies, conference organisers, meeting planners, tour operators, etc.
The destination is promoted by means of various activities.
Trade fairs & shows:
· VISITBRUSSELS goes to the main trade shows and exhibitions in both business and leisure tourism. EIBTM - IMEX – WTM – ITB
· VISITBRUSSELS also goes to activities organised by WBT (Wallonie Bruxelles Tourisme) and TVL (ToerismeVlaanderen).
· VISITBRUSSELS organises its own missions in the emerging markets, including Russia, India, the Arab Emirates, etc.
The aim is to have the different partners whom we represent accompany us, namely hoteliers, owners and managers of function rooms and halls, and service providers (DMC - PCO - transport) working in the region of Brussels and/or bringing tourists and conference participants to it. Without their presence, these missions would not make as much sense. We therefore undertake to communicate our missions a long time in advance and will adapt the content of them according to the number of partners and their expectations.
Brussels will be represented abroad many times in 2014, at trade shows, workshops, during economic missions and trade missions led by the Crown Prince.
