Tourism Minister Brendan Griffin joined tourism enterprises from the island of Ireland in London at the start of October, for Flavours of Ireland 2019.
Flavours is Tourism Ireland’s annual B2B tourism workshop, where tourism companies from Ireland meet and do business with around 120 UK inbound tour operators.
Now in its 17th year, Flavours of Ireland aims to grow Ireland’s share of the worldwide travel market. Attended by UK inbound tour operators who bring business to Ireland and the UK from all over the world (including the US, Mainland Europe, Asia, Australasia and Africa), this event was an opportunity for the participating tourism operators from Ireland to highlight and sell their product to decision makers, and to encourage them to feature the island of Ireland in their 2020 holiday and tour programmes.
Siobhan McManamy, Tourism Ireland’s Director of Markets, said: “Tourism Ireland is delighted that so many tourism organisations from the island of Ireland and so many of the leading UK inbound tour operators took the time to join us at our Flavours event again this year. We very much welcome the business and networking opportunities it presented.”
