Ireland was promoted
as a destination for conferences and incentives to a group of visiting US Meeting Planners (which included representatives from New York, Florida, Washington DC, Atlanta, Maryland, Minnesota, Virginia and California). The trip was hosted by Fáilte Ireland’s 'Meet in Ireland' team, in partnership with Tourism Ireland and the Wallace Travel Group, Kerry Convention Bureau and The Shannon Region Conference & Sports Bureau.
The group is pictured in Christ Church Cathedral with Ciara Gallagher, Mary Collins and Kate O’Riordan, Fáilte Ireland and Paul McDonagh, Tourism Ireland.
