The tourism companies from Ireland are engaging in a number of virtual ‘boardroom’ style sessions, to showcase and sell their product or experience to the influential Dutch and Belgian travel professionals. The aim of the sales mission is to highlight the many experiences and attractions on offer here to influential tour operators from the Netherlands and Belgium, to remind them about the many reasons for their clients to choose Ireland as their next holiday destination.
Karen van der Horst, Tourism Ireland’s Manager for Northern Europe, said: “Tourism Ireland is delighted that these key Dutch and Belgian tour operators are taking the time to join our sales mission and connect with our partners from Ireland. The participation of these influential travel professionals is a strong indication that interest in visiting Ireland remains high. Our message is that we cannot wait to roll out the green carpet and welcome their clients back for a fantastic holiday experience.”
