Closed vs open loop isn't a black or white definition. For example even in the US were you have significant velocity of money companies buy parts in other currencies (from other countries), consumers imports goods manufactured overseas, and investors buy foreign stocks.
So there is no such thing as a completely closed loop. I think what you are asking is what can be done to keep transactions in BTC either perpetually or for longer (before being cashed into fiat). Unfortunately that is a slow process. There is no grand over arching plan rather each individual seller increases the potential to the currency to be recirculated more before being exchanged.
I see three major factors determine how likely acquirers of BTC will keep the BTC over selling for fiat currencies:
1) Availability of goods. The more goods and services available in BTC the more valuable the currency is relative to fiat currencies and the more likely someone who acquires BTC will keep them.
2) Value of goods. If goods are sold in BTC at a discount that will increase the value of BTC. If good are sold in BTC at a premium that discounts the value of BTC.
3) Price stability. The more volatile the price the more risk of losing purchasing power by holding BTC. That will reduce the likelihood that an acquirer of BTC keeps those BTC over more stable currencies.
There are no easy answers to the problem of increasing the length of BTC loop as BTC isn't a planned economy. As an individual the best thing you can do is to offer goods or services in BTC and look for merchants who do the same.
