Are you ready for The 148th Open?

Sorry this event has now finished.

Tourism Northern Ireland has partnered with local councils to deliver a number of Business Engagement sessions to help ensure you, the NI business community, are ready for and maximising the opportunities from the 148th Open in 2019.

The 148th Open, Royal Portrush is the fastest-selling Championship in the history of The Open.  The unprecedented demand for tickets has led to all four Championship days being sold out.

It is evident from the ticket sales that there is great excitement among fans for the return of The Open to Northern Ireland for the first time in almost 70 years.

 These sessions will aim to provide insights on the following:

-          The 148th Open Toolkit – Top 10 Tips for Businesses

-          Logistics update for the 148th Open
