What do we do ?
The Belgian Travel Confederation (BTC) ensures that the voice of the Belgian travel industry is heard.
During the crisis, the support of specialist lawyers has been very valuable. Together, we were able to analyze, inform, share information. At the same time, new regulations on VAT or the law on package travel require constant review and involvement. The goal is to make this information available to each of our members, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Communication with each member, the media and politicians is crucial. Aligning communication across all possible channels, both internal and external, will continue to pay off for everyone.
To be effective and consistent in the market, our members must receive regular market information as well as studies on travel intentions against past habit data. This information is vital to grow our business and defend our industry.r.
The Belgian Travel Academy is now integrated into the BTC so that the travel sector has easy access to further training. A project that is born thanks to subsidies, among others, from the Cefora training center.
Sustainability is THE hot topic. BTC is the national contact point for collaborative projects with other international entities. BTC also has the mission of communicating, training and informing the Belgian tourism sector on these issues.
Finally, the BTC launches, as of November 14, 2022, the possibility of obtaining the CERTA label (CErtified Travel Agent), an important professional recognition both from the sector and from politics and the public..
