Ireland Wins Business Tourism Destination Award In China

Ireland has been named the top international business travel destination at an awards ceremony in China.

The 2018 Goldfinger Awards for the events and business tourism sector in China took place recently in Shanghai. Established ten years ago, these annual awards recognise the best destinations, hotels and professional conference organisers (PCOs). At the ceremony, Ireland was named one of the most influential international meetings, incentives, conferences and events (MICE) destinations.

Hosted jointly by Events Fortune magazine and China Festival magazine, the awards ceremony was attended by around 800 people from 150 different cities around China.

"Working Hard To Build Awareness"

Tourism Ireland manager for China James Kenny commented, "We are delighted that Ireland has been recognised as one of the most influential destinations for international business travel here in China. Tourism Ireland has been working hard to build awareness of the island of Ireland in China, including our ability to deliver world-class business events. This accolade will help raise the profile of Ireland and convince more influential MICE buyers and decision-makers to choose the island of Ireland."
