Ireland Mission to Canada

Tourism Ireland, together with a delegation of 23 tourism companies from Ireland and Canada, is undertaking a four-city sales mission. The delegation will meet more than 300 Canadian travel agents in the cities of London (southwest Ontario), Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax.

The sales mission involves a networking event in each city, where the participating tourism companies from Ireland have the opportunity to meet, and do business with, Canadian travel professionals. The delegation will also meet influential travel and lifestyle journalists and influencers at two media events in Ottawa and Montreal.

Sandra Moffatt, Tourism Ireland’s Manager Canada, said:

“This week’s sales mission to London, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax provides an excellent platform to spread the word about the many things to see and do, and all that is new and exciting, on a vacation to Ireland in 2023 and beyond.

“Travel agents and tour operators continue to be an important booking channel for Canadian holidaymakers, so a key element of our strategy is working closely with the travel trade, both online and offline.”
