Fáilte Ireland has been awarded a top digital technology accolade for its meetinireland.com website – a platform for meetings, incentives, conferences and events (MICE)
professionals looking to bring business to Ireland.
The website, which was designed by Simply Zesty, won the top spot in the Best in Travel, Tourism & Sport category at The Spiders, Ireland’s leading technology awards. Meetinireland.com was recognised for its innovative design and appeal for its target market, as well as helping to deliver 80 business meetings and events opportunities worth in excess of €35m alone in the first year since it was launched.
The award is the second accolade the Meet in Ireland team has won this week, having being named IBTM Stand Personnel of the Year in Barcelona and beating off competition from 270 other exhibitors from around the world. IBTM World is a leading global event for the MICE industry, and the award recognised the Meet in Ireland team’s professionalism and innovation in selling Ireland as a MICE destination to more than 4,000 buyers.
