Travel event of the year

Vakantiebeurs is the biggest travel event of the year, well-known at home and abroad for already more than 50 years. It serves as a platform for industry professionals, travel companies, and tourists to come together and explore various travel opportunities. Vakantiebeurs is part of the Dutch Travel Week.

On January 10th Vakantiebeurs offers a dedicated B2B networking event called the Travel Trade Day. This day provides opportunities for travel agents, tour operators, hoteliers, airlines, and other travel-related businesses to connect, discuss partnerships, and negotiate deals.
