Tourism Ireland Promotes Island In Rimini

The island of Ireland was promoted by Tourism Ireland to thousands of Italian travel professionals attending last week’s TTG Travel Experience in Rimini.


Eight companies from Ireland joined Tourism Ireland at TTG Travel Experience – Italy’s key B2B travel show, which is attended by influential tour operators, travel agents, and leading Italian travel journalists and bloggers.

Marcella Ercolini, Tourism Ireland’s manager for Italy, said, “Tourism Ireland is delighted to be attending TTG Travel Experience once again this year. Interest in visiting Ireland remains strong among Italian travellers. Our presence at the show provides an excellent opportunity for our partners to spread the word about the many great things to see and do right around the island of Ireland.”

Additional Information

Visitors to TTG Travel Experience also enjoyed an event organised by Tourism Ireland and Ryanair, to launch the latter’s new flight from Rome to Cork, which begins on 31 October. Irish dancing duo the Gardiner Brothers and a quartet from the Cork Jazz Festival entertained guests.

Ercolini continued, “Italy is an important market for tourism to the island of Ireland. In 2019, we welcomed 370,000 Italian visitors, whose visits delivered €183 million for the economy.”
