On this occasion, the orchestra accompanied the equally famous jazz musician David Linx. Their poetic and jazzy reinterpretation of the work of the great Jacques Brel conquered the hearts of the Mazovian audience.

Members of the Brussels delegation were also able to meet with their counterparts of the Polish capital-region to discuss future projects to be developed under the Cooperation Agreement. The Brussels-Capital Region also had its own booth at the 2016 World Travel Show (October) and at the Tourism & Travel Fair (November) in Warsaw, two major tourism trade shows.
