Tourism Ireland Promotes Ireland's Golf Offering In Marrakech

Tourism Ireland's drive to grow the number of golf visitors to the island of Ireland continued last week at the International Golf Travel Market (IGTM) in Marrakech.

16 golf and tourism operators from the island of Ireland joined Tourism Ireland, as well as Fáilte Ireland and Tourism NI, at the event for the global golf travel community.

IGTM, now in its 22nd year, brings together more than 1,300 golf travel professionals from 65 different countries, including around 400 golf tour operators. The companies from Ireland engaged in four days of one-to-one, pre-scheduled appointments and networking, which provided an opportunity to negotiate and exchange vital contracts for 2020.

"A Really Great Opportunity"

"IGTM is a really great opportunity to showcase our world-class golf. This is just one element of Tourism Ireland's busy promotional programme to encourage more golfers from around the globe to consider a holiday in Ireland," said Louise Finnegan, Tourism Ireland's head of business partnerships. "Our message is that the island of Ireland offers international golfers the complete package, with some of the very best golf in the world, spectacular scenery and the warmest of welcomes."
