Tourism Ireland has taken the award for “best stand feature” at World Travel Market (WTM) in London, the largest global event for the travel and tourism industry. The award was announced on Tuesday November 7 for the giant Finn McCool on the Tourism Ireland stand.

Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said, “We are delighted that our busy stand proved eye-catching for the judges and was singled out for this accolade.  Our aim is to capture the attention of the influential travel trade and media from around the world attending WTM this week, to convey the message to the world that there has never been a better time to visit the island of Ireland. The award is good news indeed as we kick off our marketing drive to grow overseas visitor numbers in 2018.”
