Canadian Chamber of Commerce executives visit Ireland
Twelve (12) senior executives from the Canadian Chamber of Commerce are visiting the island of Ireland this week. Their visit has been organised by Tourism Ireland in Toronto, in partnership with Indus Travels (group tour operator) and Aer Lingus, as well as Tourism NI and Fáilte Ireland.
The aim of the visit is for the executives to get to know Ireland and the many things to see and do here – equipping them to then lead ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ vacations here, boosting group travel to the island of Ireland from Canada in 2023.
The group’s action-packed itinerary is showcasing our history and heritage, as well as the many reasons for Canadian groups to visit in the off-peak season. It includes the Guinness Storehouse, EPIC the Irish Emigration Museum, the Powerscourt Estate and Powerscourt Distillery, Glendalough, the Irish National Stud, Brú na Bóinne, Titanic Belfast and a walking tour in Armagh.
Sandra Moffatt, Tourism Ireland’s Manager Canada, said “We are delighted to partner with Indus and Aer Lingus to showcase some of our iconic and ‘bucket list’ experiences to this influential group of travel leaders from the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. With year-round flights to Dublin from Toronto, we are excited to be welcoming back visitors in every season and encouraging group travel is a priority for Tourism Ireland. Our aim is that these influential guests will return home more enthused and excited about the island of Ireland than ever – and continue to help us to grown Canadian visitor numbers in 2023.”
