Tourism Ireland Leads Sales Mission To UAE And India

A delegation of tourism companies from the island of Ireland is participating in a Tourism Ireland sales mission to the UAE and India this week.

The companies from Ireland will take part in a series of workshops and networking events to meet and conclude deals with hundreds of tour operators and travel agents in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Mumbai and New Delhi. The delegation will also meet with travel journalists and bloggers.

The objective of the sales mission is to build awareness of what tourists can do and see on the island of Ireland, and to encourage tour operators and travel agents in the UAE and India to include the island of Ireland in their programmes and brochures for 2020 and beyond.

"A Really Good Platform"

Tourism Ireland director of markets Siobhan McManamy stated, "Our sales mission this week gives our tourism partners from Ireland a really good platform to inform and influence the travel professionals they meet about what the island of Ireland has to offer and, importantly, to encourage them to include the destination in their future brochures and programmes. Tourism Ireland is committed to growing visitor numbers from our emerging tourism markets, and our annual sales missions play a significant role in helping us achieve this goal."
