Representatives from Sneem’s Parknasilla Resort & Spa have joined seven other Irish tourism companies in Florida this week, to take part in a sales blitz with Tourism Ireland.
Parknasilla will be represented at the Global Travel Marketplace (GTM) in Fort Lauderdale – a three-day, appointment-only event targeting influential travel advisors from North America.
They will also travel to Sarasota, which is also in Florida, to take part in Tourism Ireland’s ‘Jump into Ireland’ event, where the Irish tourism operators have the opportunity do business with some 50 top-producing travel agents.
According to Tourism Ireland’s North America representative Alison Metcalfe this year looks set to become another record-breaking year for Irish tourism from the United States.
The latest CSO figures showing visitor numbers from North America to Ireland is up 15% between January and June.
