Our mission: to support you in creating tomorrow’s heritage

This quote from the celebrated artist can be applied to your conference. Your association may as well leave a wonderful legacy behind. For your industry and your members, for the place and the people who rolled out the red carpet for you.

At VISITFLANDERS Convention Bureau, we value this legacy. We believe that your association’s visit can offer a positive, long-term impact for society. Your conference has the potential to be a milestone in your industry, as well as in the lives of hundreds, thousands and even millions of people.

That is why our experts reflect on the legacy of your conference before it starts, along with a number of Flemish standard bearers in your key industry. After your conference, we map the impact of your conference and provide you with feedback about this.

“Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind”.
