Forging ‘Celtic Connections’

A delegation of tourism businesses from Ireland travelled to Glasgow for Tourism Ireland’s first promotion of 2024 in Scotland – a B2B workshop and networking event with travel professionals from Scotland and the north of England.

Around 30 tourism businesses from Ireland – including hotels, visitor attractions and regional tourism organisations – had the opportunity to meet, and do business with, influential tour operators and travel agents, as well Scottish travel and lifestyle journalists.

Julie Wakley, Tourism Ireland’s Head of Great Britain, said:

“We’re really pleased that so many of our tourism partners from Ireland have joined us in Glasgow this week, highlighting our tourism offering to the influential tour operators and travel agents in attendance.”

Tourism Ireland’s workshop and networking event was timed to coincide with Celtic Connections, Scotland’s premier winter music festival.
