Tourism Minister Brendan Griffin joined tourism enterprises from the island of Ireland in London recently, for Flavours of Ireland 2017.
Flavours is Tourism Ireland’s annual B2B tourism workshop, now in its 15th year, which saw some 100 representatives of inbound tour operators based in Britain come together to do business with the various tourism organisations from Ireland.
Flavours of Ireland aims to grow Ireland's share of the worldwide travel market. Attended by representatives of UK inbound tour operators, the event was an opportunity for the participating tourism providers from Ireland to highlight and sell their product to the decision-makers and to encourage them to feature Ireland in their 2018 holiday programmes.
David Boyce, Tourism Ireland’s Head of Asia, Middle East and UK Inbound, said: “Tourism Ireland is delighted that so many tourism organisations from around 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.”
