A Tourism Ireland delegation recently travelled to Scottsdale, Arizona, to attend Travel Classics West 2018 - a prestigious travel writers’ conference.
The conference brings together editors and writers from a wide range of high profile publications, including titles like National Geographic Traveler, Condé Nast Traveler, Delta Sky magazine and AFAR magazine, all of which reach hundreds of thousands of readers across North America and globally.
The event is an important networking opportunity as well as a chance for Tourism Ireland to network with journalists.
Alison Metcalfe, Tourism Ireland’s Head of North America, said: “We’re delighted to be part of Travel Classics West once again. With some of the most influential and prominent American travel and lifestyle journalists in attendance, it’s an excellent opportunity for Tourism Ireland to network and highlight what makes the island of Ireland unique.”
