This week, a delegation composed of officials from Rwanda’s travel companies, the Embassy of Rwanda in the Netherlands and the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) are showcasing Rwanda’s tourist attractions and experiences at the Vakantiebeurs Tourism Fair.
The Vakantiebeurs Tourism Fair, taking place from 11 – 15 January, is the leading travel fair for the BeNeLux (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg) market organised in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
The show attracts leading business professionals from the region’s tourism industry including tour operators, travel agents, and Africa travel specialists.
H.E. Olivier J.P. Nduhungirehe, Rwanda’s Ambassador to the Kingdom of the Netherlands said: “We look forward to supporting the Rwandan companies attending to engage and create business ties with these business travel partners in order to increase travel traffic from the region to Rwanda. Visitors to the Visit Rwanda stand can find inspiration for their next holiday, while enjoying a cup of fresh Rwandan specialty coffee and dance performances by the Rwandan dance group.”
The Rwandan companies participating at the fair include RwandAir, Kingfisher Journeys, Mist Rwanda Safaris, Silverbird Tours Agency, Pure Africa Tours and Judith Tours.
There’s a Visit Rwanda stand at the fair and a special networking session will also be organised along the margins of the event for the Rwandan delegation to engage with the participating travel agents and tour operators.
