Rwanda takes center stage at the prestigious Vakantiebeurs Tourism Fair in Utrecht, Netherlands, showcasing its diverse and captivating tourist offerings. The event, taking place from January 10 to 14, 2024, is a significant platform for Rwanda to connect with the BeNeLux market, comprising Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg.

The Vakantiebeurs Tourism Fair is renowned as a premier travel fair, drawing exhibitors from over 100 countries. This year, Rwanda aims to leverage the event to build on the positive momentum of the tourism sector’s recovery, particularly in the Netherlands. After the setbacks caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, 2023 has emerged as an important year, witnessing a remarkable 75.3% recovery rate in tourist numbers from the Netherlands to Rwanda.

The Vakantiebeurs Tourism Fair has a proven track record, with the previous edition attracting over 65,000 visitors throughout the 5-day event. With an estimated 65% of attendees expected to return for the 2024 edition, this provides a substantial audience for Rwanda to present its unique offerings.

Rwanda’s Ambassador to the Netherlands, H.E. Mr. Olivier J.P. Nduhungirehe, emphasized the country’s increasing popularity among adventure enthusiasts worldwide. He highlighted the diverse experiences awaiting tourists in Rwanda, such as kayaking on Lake Kivu or cycling the Congo Nile Trail. With the Netherlands being a nation where each person owns an average of 1.4 bikes, the ambassador sees this as an excellent opportunity to promote Rwanda’s cycling attractions.

Visit Rwanda, the tourism campaign of the Rwanda Development Board, aims not only to promote tourism but also to contribute to Rwanda’s economic development by facilitating private sector growth.
