Tourism Ireland Leads Sales Blitz To Canada

Tourism Ireland’s 2019 sales blitz to Canada is under way this week. A delegation of 14 tourism enterprises from the island of Ireland is taking part in the targeted mission to Vancouver, Calgary, Hamilton and Toronto, the aim of which is to grow Ireland's share of the Candian tourism market.

The sales mission involves the companies from Ireland meeting and doing business with leading tour operators and travel agents in each city. Key messages will include ease of access from Canada to Ireland as well as the huge range of things to see and do in Ireland.

"An Excellent Platform"

Dana Welch, Tourism Ireland’s manager Canada, commented, "Our sales blitz to Vancouver, Calgary, Hamilton and Toronto this week provides an excellent platform to kick-start our promotional effort for 2019 and to spread the word about the many great things to see and do right around the island of Ireland. It’s a really good platform for our tourism partners from Ireland to inform and influence the travel professionals they meet about what Ireland has to offer and, importantly, to encourage them to include the destination in their future brochures and programmes."
