Tourism Ireland Showcases Ireland's Golf Offering In Slovenia

Tourism Ireland’s drive to grow the number of golf visitors to the island of Ireland continues this week at the International Golf Travel Market (IGTM) in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Sixteen golf and tourism operators from Ireland have joined Tourism Ireland at the event for the global golf travel community.

IGTM, now in its 21st year, brings together more than 1,300 golf travel professionals from around the world, including about 400 golf tour operators. The Irish companies are engaging in four days of one-to-one, pre-scheduled appointments which provide an opportunity to negotiate and exchange contracts for 2019.

"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."
