“NO BR__SELS WITHOUT US"
Last Friday, the Brussels Government approved a range of measures to support the actors in the tourism and cultural sectors in re-starting their activities. In this context, visit.brussels, in collaboration with the agency ‘FamousGrey’, has developed a new marketing campaign to boost tourist activity in the European capital. The original concept will be unveiled today.
The tourism, events and cultural sectors continue to grow in importance in Brussels. Over the last ten years, the number of overnight stays in the Brussels-Capital Region has increased by an average of 5.88% per year. In addition, our museums and attractions welcomed more than 5 million visitors in 2019. These tourist numbers have a significant impact on the regional economy.
All of these sectors are currently severely affected by the corona crisis. In order to support the actors in the tourism, events and cultural sectors and to meet their needs as effectively as possible, the Brussels-Capital Region commissioned visit.brussels to consult these actors, in order to draw up a support plan to re-start their activities. This coordinated campaign was implemented with the collaboration of more than 250 partners from all sectors.
The re-start plan contains a range of measures, including the introduction of a health charter and a hygiene label, and a reduction in the price of the Brussels Card 48h. It also includes the launch of a major marketing campaign to promote the destination among the Belgian and international public. The aim of this campaign is to give a new boost to the tourism sector. The agency FamousGrey won the call for projects with its concept: No Br_sels without us.
Who better than the people of Brussels to help you discover the vibe and cultural richness of the European capital? After all, Brussels is the sum of a savvy blend of humour, culture, hospitality and the open-mindedness of its inhabitants. The most cosmopolitan city in Europe with 183 nationalities, and the second most cosmopolitan in the world. What makes Brussels Brussels is the people from around the world who live here. There is no Brussels without them. No Br_sels without us.
