Holiday inspiration at 1,5 meters
Despite a growing interest in holidays, the industry still faces a huge challenge in recovering from the impact of COVID-19. Normally we kick off the new booking season together in January. However, conversations with various partners in the travel industry and visitor research have shown that for now, January is not the right time.
To meet the expectations of our exhibitors and visitors we have decided to reschedule Vakantiebeurs once to April, 2021.
Naturally, Vakantiebeurs 2021 will look a little different due to COVID-19 measures. The event is organized according to the 1.5-meter standards within the already approved event protocol. But no worries, even at 1,5 meters Vakantiebeurs will have plenty of opportunities to meet travel professionals and travel-loving consumers.

Now more than ever, the event helps to fuel the hunger for travel. At the same time, it provides guidance and direction to (trade) visitors.
