Cancellation of Meet the Buyer 2020

Meet the Buyer 2020 has been cancelled

162 international buyers were expected to attend this annual international sales platform.

The review considered the number of buyers planning to attend, and available appointments for our industry to engage with buyers, and concluded that with a growing number of available appointments not going ahead due to buyer cancellations and further cancellations extremely likely, the only realistic decision was to cancel Meet the Buyer 2020.

We will be working with our partners in Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland and will seek to replace Meet the Buyer with virtual networking opportunities over the coming months as well as exploring future events.

Full refunds on Meet the Buyer 2020 registration fees will issue to industry over the coming weeks.

Tourism NI continues to closely monitor the situation regarding coronavirus (Covid-19). We are working closely with our stakeholders to monitor the impacts on the ground, conduct ongoing research and link to the Department for the Economy and the Executive to inform a wider governmental response.
