Belgian beer tasting event

23rd - 27th November, 2015: The Indian beer industry has faced several significant changes in the past decade due to introduction of international brands such as Foster's, Budweiser and Carlsberg. A Belgian Beer house in Hyderabad offers its customers a selected variety of imported Belgium beers.
A Belgian beer tasting event was organized in Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai from 23rd - 27th Nov,  2015. More than 10 breweries and 40 beers were showcased at this event. The audience were Indian professionals, food and beverage managers, lighted beer importers and beer lovers from all over India. They appreciated the different flavors. Thrill beer, pale ale specialists and IPA clubbed with the supporters of fruit beers or those of wheat beers. As a result each brewery earned new fans. This has proved that Indians are fond of Belgian beers and it is time for Belgian brewers to make their way into the Indian market against all odds. AWEX and BIE helps Wallonia/Brussels brewers to export their beers to India.
 

“Green Key” Eco Label for Brussels hotels and sites

At a time when sustainability is progressively becoming a selection criterion in the tourism industry, and against the backdrop of an extremely competitive market, having an internationally recognized tourist label can make all the difference. The "Green Key" 2014: Eco-label was recently awarded to 2 new hotels and renewed for 26 sites in Brussels.
 
This means almost 20% of hotel rooms recognised by the French Community Commission (Cocof) and 80% of youth hostel capacity in the Belgian capital now carry this prestigious eco-label. Brussels has now enjoyed this label for over 5 years and this shows the importance the city gives to operating more ecologically over the long term, while continuously improving.
 
The Green Key is an international, neutral, independent eco-label for tourism establishments. Created in 1994 and managed at international level by a non-profit organisation (the FEE – Foundation for Environmental Education), today, over 2,200 sites in 45 countries hold the award.
