For the 10th time #VisitRwanda is showcasing its diverse touristic attractions at the Vakantiebeurs tourism exhibition, taking place this week until Sunday, January 13, in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
The exhibition kicked off on Wednesday with an industry day for the Dutch travel professionals and travel media.
Rwanda is among the 160 countries that are participating at the Vakantiebeurs, which attracts more than 100,000 visitors.
#VisitRwanda at the Vakantiebeurs is about getting inspired about the country and everything Rwanda has to offer.
First, by getting in touch with the local specialists from Rwanda and hearing the stories and experiences from first hand.
Representatives from the Rwanda Development Board (RDB), the Embassy of Rwanda in The Hague, Amahoro Tours, Wildlife Tours Rwanda and WOLF DMC, are available at the Visit Rwanda stand in hall 12 during the five-day event.
Then, cultural inspiration will come while enjoying a traditional dance performance by the Rwanda dance group, followed by a culinary experience served by the barista on the Rwanda stand, serving specialty coffee and tea from the land of thousand hills.
On behalf of the Rwanda Development Board, Rwanda’s Ambassador to the Netherlands, Jean Pierre Karabaranga, invited the Dutch tourism professionals and travel media to the Visit Rwanda network reception, which was co-hosted by Dutch tour operator Untamed Travelling.
At the end of the cocktail a raffle was organized where the travel agents could win a VIP Holiday to Rwanda.
Ambassador Karabaranga and Jozef Verbruggen, Managing Director of Untamed Travelling, were honored to pick the winner and to hand over the cheque.
