THE NETHERLANDS BOARD OF TOURISM & CONVENTIONS (NBTC)
The Netherlands Board of Tourism & Conventions (NBTC) is the organisation responsible for promoting the Netherlands nationally and internationally. They put The Netherlands on the map as an attractive destination by means of our registered brands ‘Lekker weg in eigen land’ and ‘Holland’. They focus on the markets for holidays, business meetings and conventions. To do this they receive central government funding from the Ministry of Economic Affairs. They also cooperate closely with relevant parties within and outside the tourism sector. As the premier organisation for marketing The Netherlands as a destination, they possess a lot of expertise in the marketing, communication and research fields. The result is effective campaigns and publicity that attract more visitors to The Netherlands.
NBTC concentrates on those countries and regions that provide the largest numbers of visitors to The Netherlands. We also zoom in on customer groups that have an added value for the Netherlands and its tourism sector. Based on this approach our organisation undertakes activities in Europe, North America and Asia.
NBTC has an excellent platform to support anybody who wants to organise international meetings and conventions in the Netherlands. Co-operation between NBTC and the conventions industry makes it possible for the Dutch conventions industry to respond efficiently to the wishes of convention organisers in the Netherlands and other countries. After all, NBTC is here to help you find the facilities and companies best able to meet your wishes and requirements.

Our sponsor transport company for our UK buyers.
Two decades ago, Eurostar changed the way people travel from the UK to France, Belgium and the Netherlands forever. Over the years, they have helped build connections that could never have flourished before – business to business, friend to friend, amour to amour… And now the connections reach even farther, with links to over 100 destinations across Europe via Paris, Brussels, Lille, Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
Over the last 25 years, they have led the way in cross-Channel high-speed rail, revolutionising the links between the UK and mainland Europe. They have always had a strong sense of responsibility for the environment but as the demand for sustainable travel becomes increasingly critical, we believe we can raise the bar. With our environmental ambitions we are providing an attractive, eco-friendly alternative to the airlines.
