Dear B&B Traveler,

More than 10,000 travelers are expected to attend the sixth annual B&B Expo on March 19 and 20 in Brussels, Belgium.

By reserving by January 31, you can get a prominent location in the group stand for only 460€, a 15% discount off the regular rates. To reserve, email today; be sure to identify yourself as a member to get this special rate! members also get a 10% discount for their ad in the B&B Expo magazine, in addition to being mentioned in the ad.

The Expo has grown in the number of exhibitors and visitors each year, with over 10,000 visitors in 2010, and over 200 exhibitors from two dozen countries. For 2011, the Expo will be held in the handsomely restored exposition halls of Tour & Taxis, close to the city centre of Brussels and the Brussels North train station, complete with all modern facilities.

Nearly 90% of exhibitors were “very satisfied” with the quality of the show and the caliber of the visitors, and many have already reserved booths for 2011. Exhibitors include both individual inns and associations of B&Bs, country inns, small hotels, plus national, regional, and local tourism boards. For greater impact, many exhibitors coordinate with area colleagues and/or with their local tourism board.

A survey of B&B EXPO visitors revealed that:

* 80% of all visitors go on holiday at least twice a year
* 72% of all visitors do not attend any other travel exhibition
* 70% of all visitors use the Internet to book their holidays
* 58% of all visitors are looking for special interest holidays (walking, cycling, motorcycling, wellness, etc.)

For 2011, continued growth in attendance and continued improvement in the quality and results of the Expo is assured by increased promotion, newsletters, an improved multi lingual website, additional information for special interest travelers, and a magazine distributed to all visitors.

Why participate? B&B EXPO is the only international travel event for travelers looking for charming holidays in small-scale accommodations. Many travelers book their vacation three months before departure, so the timing is perfect for meeting potential summer guests in a unique and personal way. B&B EXPO organizes campaigns to attract the right public in Belgium and neighboring countries. In addition, interested visitors receive regular newsletters with information about the event, the exhibitors and the sponsors.

Please register by January 31, 2010 to receive your 15% discount. Registration after the deadline is dependent on space.

Just want to attend? Innkeepers get 50% off the regular admission price of 9 euro. Just identify yourself as an innkeeper when you buy your tickets at the expo gate.
