Join us for the 6th edition of European Cities Marketing’s TIC Expert Meeting 2019!

This year’s meeting will be held in Ghent on October 24-25, 2019.


Our one-and-a-half-day event provides you with a unique opportunity:

  • to meet and network with colleagues working in Tourist Information Centres all across Europe,
  • to share knowledge and best practice with other destinations to stay ahead of the latest market’s trends
  • and to grow your business as well as strengthen your professional expertise.


Our TIC Expert Meeting offers a mix of incentive and exchange opportunities for all attendees. This is why the diversity of participants is of great importance to us.

This event is exclusively for managers and TIC front office professionals coming from small and large cities and working for either public or private tourist information organisations – whether they are ECM members or not.

The aim of the meeting is of course to get to know your European colleagues, to share knowledge with them but most of all, we want you to have fun and leave full of inspiration and with a bunch of new friends. We are looking forward to welcoming you for this sixth edition!

Programme will be available soon!
