The biggest event for Belgian travel influencers

The Belgian Travel Blog Awards (formerly ‘Bloggers UTD - the travel gathering) is an annual event, organized by specialized travel PR agency Sound of C. Each year, the best Belgian travel bloggers and social influencers are being rewarded for the travel content they produced. On 6 March 2021, we celebrate the fourth edition with a virtual award show, which will be live streamed from this website. On 16 June 2021, we invite all winners, nominees and participants of the Belgian Travel Blog Awards on a live networking drink - if the event regulations allow us to organise an event for that many people. We hope to know more around mid-May. Stay tuned!
