Belgium, uniquely phenomenal

Major project

Since 2017, the Chancellery of the Prime Minister has been running a campaign to promote Belgium as a brand.

The campaign is entitled Belgium, uniquely phenomenal  and lists 99 reasons to visit and invest in Belgium.

Its aim is to highlight the many attractions that Belgium has to offer, while striking a humorous and modest tone.

It began with an extensive poster campaign in the country's  main cities, as well as in airports and train stations.

Chocolate is best when it’s kept out of the sun. - No surprise that the best is found in Belgium.
Not all artists have covered Jacques Brel songs. - Just Frank Sinatra, Nina Simone, Celine Dion, Nirvana...
Not all our fashion designers are world famous. - Only 10 to 15 of them.
We could keep reminding you that we were the ones to invent fries. - But we’d rather just eat them.

A website, available in four languages, refers to the same way 99 good reasons to love Belgium, and calls on people to (re)discover the best that the country has to offer in the areas of art, gastronomy, tourism, sport, culture or simply good living. The site and the campaign also highlight Belgium’s qualities to foreign investors.

Belgium, uniquely phenomenal, also accompanies  the federal government during missions abroad. Since  its inception, the campaign has included many different actions.
