Number of tourist arrivals in the Brussels-Capital Region (Belgium) 2014-2019

In 2018, the Brussels-Capital Region (Belgium) attracted over four million tourists. This represents an increase of 5 percent compared to previous years. Indeed, from 2014 to 2019, the region reached its highest number of tourist arrivals in 2019.

Occupancy and room rates increased again from 2017 onwards

The occupancy rate of hotels in the Brussels-Capital Region decreased from 2014 to 2016, yet increased from 2017 onwards. In 2018, the occupancy rate amounted to approximately 75 percent. Similarly, the average price for hotel rooms went from 104 euros in 2017 to 117 euros by 2018. The lowest price was registered in 2016, where a hotel room reached on average 106 euros. The lower occupancy rate and price rates in 2016 could both be explained by the tragic event that happened in March, when terroristic attacks took place in and around Brussels.

Business-related overnight stays reached the highest volume in 2018

Besides leisure tourism, the Brussels-Capital Region also attracted business visitors. The number of congresses and meetings that were held in the capital city amounted to a total of 846 in 2018. Roughly 735 were organized by the Union of International Associations (UIA), whereas 112 were managed by the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA).
