Brussels in Zagreb 2015
The International Tourism Fair Place2go
The International Tourism Fair Place2go (http://www.place2go.org/) took place in Zagreb from March 13th - 15th 2015. The Croatian office of Brussels Invest&Export (www.brussel-in-croatia.com) presented the City of Brussels, in close cooperation with VisitBrussels (www.visitbrussels.be), a major stakeholder of the promotion of the Belgian Capital City.
Brussels is usually thought of as the capital of the European Union, as well as one of the most important economic and political capitals in Europe. However, at the Fair, Brussels was presented rather as a European tourist and cultural centre.
The citizens of Zagreb were particularly interested in the flower carpet displayed every two years in August at the main square in Brussels. The City of Brussels is full of many other attractions such as the Atomium, Manneken Pis, monuments, palaces, museums and parks, but what is most known are its chocolate, beer and comic books, which were also presented at the Fair.
During the Fair, several meetings were held with Croatian travel/tourist agencies, which decided to include Brussels in their City Break promotional packs this year. As there were lots of positive reactions and feedback, our office will continue to promote Brussels as a tourist and cultural centre of Europe.
