…Lift Off! (Countdown to WTM)

Well, we all survived day 1 at WTM and what a day it was! We opened our brand new stand, welcomed the nearly 40 participants from Flanders, had our networking event in the evening, received our Tourism minister, and did business business business with all those who can forward our Centenary mission.  I’m too tired to write more, but here are a few pictures. Frankly… we’re all quite proud of our Visit Flanders achievement!

Wel, we hebben dag 1 van WTM overleefd. En wat een dag was dat… we openden onze nieuwe stand, installeerden de bijna 40 participanten uit Vlaanderen, hadden in de vooravond ons netwerk-evenement, ontvingen onze minister van Toerisme en deden business business business met iedereen die ons kan helpen bij 100 Jaar Groote Oorlogproject. Ik ben te moe om veel meer te vertellen, maar hier zijn enkele foto’s. Eerlijk: we zijn allemaal nogal fier voor wat we met Toerisme Vlaanderen hier hebben neergezet!

The night before opening... stress!
