Fáilte Ireland is administering a €10million fund to support Ireland based inbound agents who package, sell and market Ireland’s tourism product overseas. The Scheme is now
open for applications until 8 December 2020.
The Ireland Based Inbound Agents Business Continuity Scheme is open to Republic of Ireland based Inbound Tour Operators, Destination Management Companies (DMCs) and Professional Conference Organisers (PCOs).
Welcoming the fund, the Minister for Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport, Gaeltacht and Media Catherine Martin T.D. said:
“COVID-19 has had catastrophic implications for the tourism and hospitality sector. With no overseas tourists coming into the country, inbound agents have been seriously impacted. This scheme will provide these businesses with a direct financial contribution to help support them with future operational and business continuity plans.”
