200+ Canadian Travel Agents join Tourism Ireland and Partners at Fall Sales Mission

Tourism Ireland’s Fall 2019 sales mission is happening this week. A delegation of tourism enterprises from Ireland and Canadian partners are taking part in the targeted sales mission to London, Ottawa and Montreal. The workshops involve meeting, educating, and doing business with travel agents in each city.

In recent years, the Canadian market has performed strongly for tourism to Ireland. Ireland is now the seventh most popular European destination for Canadian travellers. In 2018, around 240,000 Canadians visited the island of Ireland, spending about €230 million. Canadian visitors are highly prized as they tend to stay longer, spend more and visit more of the regions of Ireland than the average visitor.

Dana Welch, Manager, Tourism Ireland, Canada, said: “Our sales mission to London, Ottawa and Montreal this week provides an excellent platform to highlight our promotional offerings in 2019 and gear up for 2020. Travel agents and tour operators continue to be an important booking channel for Canadian holidaymakers and a key element of our strategy is working closely with the travel trade, both online and offline. Our workshops provide the contacts, opportunities and platform to highlight the many incredible experiences the island of Ireland has to offer throughout the year, while continuing to build on our relationship with partners and agents.”

I heartily agree Ivanna! Add this to the list of words we really wish had not been invented. (And that list includes Twitterverse, Twittersphere, Twitter-any-bloody-thing. Can Twittercation be far behind?)
