Inbound tourism

Every 3 to 4 years, NBTC conducts a large-scale study of inbound tourism. In this study, we focus on the motives for the visits, the activities that people undertake in the Netherlands, booking behaviour and expenditures in the Netherlands, among other things. This makes it an important building block for a successful marketing and promotion policy for ‘Holland’.
