Our Events

The Travel Gala

  • Ceremony announcing winners of ‘The Dutch Travel Awards’
  • Travel Manager of the Year
  • Innovation of the Year

For many years the Election of the Travel Agency of the Year is a recognized election to the very best travel agencies with a provincial or even a national title. The election consists of several rounds, in which the travel agency will be pushed to look critical to the management.

After these rounds the provincial winners will be announced. The provincial winners will battle for the esteemed national title. The winner will be revealed at a festival gala and crowned as the best travel agency of the Netherlands.

The platform for every independent travel agent in the Netherlands. A Battle will take place for the title of the best independent travel agent, but also endless creative possibilities to lift your company up to a higher level.

Along with the election of the best independent travel agent, there will also be valuable meetings and events on the program where subjects such as:

time management, pricing, presentation techniques, juridical aspects and social media will all be explored. One of the highly recommended meetings is the independent travel agent Holland Start symposium that will take place at the ‘Vakantiebeurs’.

Share experiences, provide opportunities to deepen knowledge and provide a platform for networking. These are some of the activities of the new Reis Management Club (translated: Travel Management Club). For over 30 years Reis Management Club has been the podium for travel professionals to meet and exchange knowledge and experiences, as powered by TravMagazine all those years.

Over the past years, more than 1,400 travel managers have joined the RMC which has become a household name in the travel trade in the Netherlands. RMC focuses on the management of all travel companies. These include directors / owners of tour operators and retail companies, managers, product managers, sales specialists, affiliate managers, but also ambitious employees. This RMC addresses a broad audience interested in the whole travel industry.

Every year, our magazine Business Traveller and M!CE & Business Travel organize the Business Traveller MICE Fair in the Netherlands. This one day event will bring together suppliers and Dutch buyers in an educative and inspiring setting. We expect the top 400 buyers (agencies & corporate clients) of the Dutch Business Travel & MICE industry to be present

who will utilize this event to exchange information as well as to discuss decision-making on destinations, venues, and accommodation. A select number of tourist boards, DMC’s, hotel chains, congress & meeting facilitators will present their latest offer to the Dutch market.
