Antwerp CB Arrives at IBTM 2023 with a New International Offer

14th Nov, 2023

Antwerp Convention Bureau will officially launch its proactive international offering at IBTM 2023 on stand F54, where it will present Antwerp's extensive portfolio of world-class event venues, unique cultural experiences, and top-tier services to the global conference and event planning community.

After a year of incredible success setting up the organisation and developing relationships with local partners, stakeholders and potential clients, Antwerp Convention Bureau is using IBTM as a platform to launch its international offering. Since opening its doors a year ago, Antwerp Convention Bureau has already helped the city generate significant new conference and event business, including more than 20 large events (500 persons+) over the next three years, these will see more than 21,000 people visit the city.

Moving forward, Antwerp Convention Bureau will focus on positioning Antwerp as a premier international destination for conventions, meetings, and events looking for a city that perfectly balances intimacy with world leading event infrastructure. In addition to proactively marketing the city, the team at the CVB will also support association and corporate organisers throughout the lifecycle of any event they bring to the Belgian city.

As part of its presence at IBTM 2023, Antwerp Convention Bureau will host an exclusive presentation for press and buyers on Wednesday 29th November at 0930 on stand F54. During the presentation, the team and partners will preview its new brand as well as highlighting the outstanding offering that makes Antwerp an ideal choice for any conference or event planner's needs.

Antwerp Convention Bureau, CEO, Tadeja Pivic Coudyser said: "Antwerp is an intimate city with a rich history, vibrant culture, and an unbeatable combination of historic and modern facilities. Our mission is to provide exceptional support and showcase our city's unique assets to conference and event planners. We look forward to demonstrating why Antwerp is the perfect host for international conferences, conventions, and meetings of all sizes."

The Board of Directors of the Antwerp Convention Bureau also shared their vision for the venture, with Board chair Ruben Verhoeven adding: "Our board is committed to ensuring that Antwerp becomes a preferred destination for leading association and corporate events from around the world. We believe that Antwerp's versatility, accessibility, and cultural richness provide the ideal backdrop for memorable experiences. We are looking forward to the impact the CVB will continue to have as we work together to showcase everything the city has to offer."
