Tourism Ireland hosted a virtual sales event for Austrian and Swiss tour operators this week.
During the two day online event, tourism companies from Ireland connected with key Austrian and Swiss tour operators via a series of video appointments.
The aim of the event was to promote Ireland to these influential tour operators to position the country well for when the time is right to welcome international visitors again.
"A Strong Indication That Interest In Visiting Ireland Remains High"
Tourism Ireland's manager for Austria and Switzerland, Aubrey Irwin, stated, "Tourism Ireland is delighted that these key tour operators from Austria and Switzerland are taking the time to join us, and our partners from Ireland, for our virtual sales mission. The participation of these buyers is a strong indication that interest in visiting Ireland remains high.
"Our message for the Austrian and Swiss tour operators is that, when the time is right, we will have everything ready to welcome their clients 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 holiday experience for their clients."
