CMT is one of the biggest travel fairs in Germany, attracting around 300,000 visitors. It also attracts leading tour operators and travel agents, as well as around 1,500 travel and lifestyle journalists, during the nine-day event.

Nadine Lehmann, Tourism Ireland’s Manager Germany, said: 

“CMT in Stuttgart is the first travel fair of the year for Tourism Ireland, providing an excellent opportunity to spread the word about the many great things to see and do in Ireland and to inspire German travellers to put Ireland on their holiday ‘wish-list’ for 2024. Germany is the third-largest source of visitors to Ireland and one of the largest outbound travel markets in the world.”
