Join us at the 8th IRU European Bus and Coach Forum




Some 250 representatives of the tourism and travel industry, Members of the European Parliament, national competent authorities, European Commission officials, bus and coach manufacturers, researchers, and specialised journalists from all over the world will debate the current and future contribution of group tourism by coach to seniors’ and out of season tourism and travel in Europe and beyond.


28 August 2013 - One not to be missed is the 8th IRU European Bus and Coach Forum taking place in Kortrijk, Belgium on 17 October 2013, in the framework of the largest bus and coach exhibition in the world - Busworld Kortrijk.


The topic of the Bus and Coach Forum 2013 is “European group tourism by coach: Driving seniors’ and out of season tourism”. The debate will be focusing on the current situation and existing market opportunities, as well as on discussing practical problems and solutions for bringing customers on board touring coaches, particularly during low season.


During the opening of Busworld Kortrijk, there will be an Awards Ceremony for the winners of the IRU City Trophy Award 2013, IRU Bus Excellence Award 2013 and the IRU Coach Tourism Innovation Award 2013 to encourage, highlight and spread excellence within our sector and with decision-makers at all levels, demonstrating the commitment of the bus and coach industry and authorities to develop best practices that meet the increasing demand for sustainable, super-friendly and passenger focused mobility.


Also being presented at the Forum is the E-Calypso business platform, where coach operators will have the possibility to test the business opportunities it is offering to them directly on the spot, through the forum “E-Calpyso information and business opportunities desk”.


Forum participants will also have the opportunity to be the first to discover the most exciting Busworld novelties before its official opening, through an exclusive guided visit of the Busworld exhibition.

See you all in Kortrijk!
