Tourism Ireland Hosts 'Ireland Virtual Expo'

28 tourism companies from around the island of Ireland are taking part in Tourism Ireland's first ever North American "Ireland Virtual Expo" this week.

The "Ireland Virtual Expo" will allow the 28 tourism companies from across Ireland, as well as 12 tour operators based in North America, to connect with more than 2,000 high-end travel advisors based across the United States and Canada.

The aim of the "Ireland Virtual Expo" is to promote the island of Ireland to these North America travel advisors to position the island well for when the time is right to welcome international visitors again.


Tourism Ireland's head of North America and Australia, Alison Metcalfe, stated, "Tourism Ireland is delighted that over 2,000 travel advisors from across the United States and Canada are taking the time to join us and our partners from Ireland and North America for our first ever North American 'Ireland Virtual Expo'.

"Our message for the US and Canadian travel advisors is that, when the time is right, we will have everything ready to welcome North American visitors back to our shores. We'll be assuring them that tourism companies across Ireland have been implementing all the required new health and safety measures, but will still be ready to deliver a fantastic vacation experience for their clients."
