Nine Irish tourism companies joined Tourism Ireland in Florida recently, for the annual Global Travel Marketplace (GTM).
GTM Florida is a three day event, involving a programme of bespoke one-to-one appointments and networking sessions. Tourism Ireland’s sponsorship at GTM 2019 also included a lunchtime presentation dedicated to the island of Ireland.
Irish companies taking part included Lough Eske Castle, Mount Juliet Estate, and Pearse Lyons Distillery.
GTM offers an opportunity for the Irish tourism enterprises to meet, and do business with, travel advisors from North America, including representatives of travel consortia like Virtuoso, Signature and Amex.
“Our presence at this year’s GTM in Florida provides another platform to highlight the many great things to see and do right around the island of Ireland to North American travel professionals,” said Alison Metcalfe, Tourism Ireland’s Head of North America.
