Local or regional government agency

The mission of VISITFLANDERS is to promote tourism and recreation and leisure in this area. To do this the agency is responsible for increased professionalism in the tourism industry and support the development of tourism and provides general coordination of this support. Tasks VISITFLANDERS lie specifically in the areas of promotion of tourist products, quality monitoring, research, communication and collaboration. The Accessible Travel Info Point (in Dutch: Infopunt Toegankelijk Reizen) is also a service of VISITFLANDERS. The mission of the Info Point is to supplement the lack of information about travelling when you have a disability. Furthermore, VISITFLANDERS also has another service called The Holiday Participation Centre which targets people and families in poverty who, for reasons, are unable to take a holiday. This target group is reached via social member organisations.
