In 2021, Kongres Magazine nominated her as one of 10 most influential destination representatives in New Europe.
“I am delighted to start working with the team to improve the recognition and promotion of Antwerp. We have everything it takes to lift the share of business events to a higher level. We will do this together with the economic clusters which make this city so unique.”, said Coudyser.
