Golf and Tourism Operators Take Swing at Increasing Vistors to Ireland
Sixteen Irish golf and tourism operators have joined Tourism Ireland at the International Golf Travel Market (IGTM) in Ljubljana, Slovenia in an effort to boost the number of golf visitors to the Emerald Isle.
IGTM, now in its 21st year, brings together more than 1,300 golf travel professionals from around the world, including about 400 golf tour operators. The Irish companies will engage in four days of one-to-one, pre-scheduled appointments and networking – which provide an excellent opportunity to negotiate and exchange vital contracts for 2019.
“IGTM is a really great opportunity to showcase our world-class golf. This is just one element of Tourism Ireland’s busy promotional programme to encourage more golfers from around the globe to consider a holiday in Ireland,” said Louise Finnegan, Tourism Ireland’s Head of Business Partnerships, in a statement.
“Our message is that the island of Ireland offers international golfers the complete package – with some of the very best golf in the world, spectacular scenery and the warmest of welcomes.”
