A RENEWAL NOT TO ME MISSED
BTExpo has been “The place to be” for tourism professionals for 11 years, and this year more than ever, because you will all have so much to say to each other, so many experiences to share!
AGENCY GROUPS SUPPORT BTexpo
BTEXPO 2020 should be a great success thanks to the unanimous support of groups of travel agencies and professional associations in Belgium! We are now guaranteed to have many quality visitors. An edition not to be missed!
SHOW MUST GO ON
Dear Professional Friends of Travel and Tourism,
For the past 3 months, our way of life was turned upside down,
For the past 3 months, we've been working together to protect our clients,
For the past 3 months, we have been fighting for the survival of our businesses,
For the past 3 months, we have been trying to protect our employees who are the soul of our profession,
Things haven't been easy and they still aren't.
Without our professional associations UPAV, VVR and other groups we would have encountered greater difficulties for the survival of our business
A huge THANK YOU to them for their energy and intelligence.
Nevertheless, we love our job for which "Travelling" is our passion! Therefore, we are going to rebuild our industry, to consolidate it again.
Within the last few days, several doors of hope have been opened such as:
statistical curves are going down day by day in many parts of the world,
governments are relaxing lockdown measures,
borders that are reopening,
planes will soon fly again, international trains will run, rental cars and coaches will be on the road,
river and sea cruises are being rethought,
hotels, beaches, restaurants, and tourist & cultural sites are adapted to the circumstances and are gradually opening up,
tourism boards are once again boosting the assets of their destinations.
We are going to have a huge need to meet again, to exchange and communicate between professionals, to relaunch the next seasons. Pleasure and interest will be even greater due to the long deprivation we have had.
BTExpo has put everything in place so that these essential meetings can take place on 26 and 27 October 2020, in Nivelles and Gent.
We have been discreet over the last few months because the priorities were of course elsewhere, but the work preparation continued: take a few minutes to visit or revisit our website www.btexpo.com.
Save these two dates in your calendar!
We are of course available to answer your questions and suggestions.
We look forward to hearing from you,
Bernard Philippart et Ignace Vermeylen
The BTExpo of Hope
Like last year, the organizers are renewing this formula with a day in Brabant and a day in Flanders. The day in Brussels had been a great success and for Flanders, many encouragement to persevere had been issued, but the request was to be more central and to choose the city of Ghent.
