The Embassy of Ireland in London was the venue for Tourism Ireland’s business tourism event – organised in conjunction with Fáilte Ireland – which was attended by more than 60 senior representatives of international associations in Britain.
The guests heard about Ireland’s world-class conference facilities and what makes Ireland such a special destination. Business tourism is the most lucrative form of tourism, with associations regularly holding conferences for thousands of delegates in different venues around the world, offering significant economic benefits to the host country.
