Lisa will share tips on how to engage with the travel industry, get them to differentiate their product and spread the visitors in the region. She will review the challenges VisitFlanders faced and the legacies left by the four year campaign.
We also asked her about her most memorable UK holiday. Apparently, a childhood trip to Wales, memorable for all the wrong reasons: “whilst having the time of our lives exploring rock pools and having fun on the beach, my brother “lost” the car keys as was discovered by my fraught parents when it came to packing up to go home and the tide was coming in fast! Yes we were parked on the beach and thankfully we did find them in time, but only just! “
