Meet the Buyer 2018 Registration Now Open

Taking place at Belfast Waterfront on 19 April 2018, the must-attend event provides an opportunity for local tourism providers to showcase their offering and strike deals with international operators who can drive visitors to Northern Ireland.

Last year’s Meet the Buyer was the most successful to date, attracting 132 international buyers and generating 4,000 sales appointments.

Eimear Callaghan, Tourism NI’s Business Solutions Manager, said: “Meet the Buyer is Northern Ireland’s biggest travel trade platform and a huge opportunity to meet qualified international buyers.

“Tourism providers can showcase their product to a select, focused audience and, in so doing, increase their share of the lucrative tourism market in Northern Ireland.

“But don’t delay – registration is only open for two weeks, until 7 February.”

In preparation for Meet the Buyer, Tourism NI invited the industry to attend a masterclass on Tuesday (January 23) at Crowne Plaza Belfast to help tourism providers successfully engage with international buyers. A panel of both NI industry and travel trade buyers were on hand to share their experiences.

Registration for Meet the Buyer 2018 closes on Wednesday 7th February. For more information and to view all key dates visit or contact the Tourism NI Business Solutions Team on 028 9044 1587 or email
