Coach & Group Networking Event

Sorry this event has now finished.

2017 was a bumper year for tourism in Northern Ireland, achieving an economic impact of £926m, an increase of 9%. Visitors from the Republic of Ireland and Great Britain also witnessed a rise. With many coach & group operators in Great Britain and Republic of Ireland currently experiencing growth and extending their island of Ireland programmes, now is the perfect time to increase the Northern Ireland product offering.

Tourism Northern Ireland, in partnership with Tourism Ireland, will invite approximately 35 qualified operators to this workshop from Great Britain and Republic of Ireland and all are extremely influential in the coach and group sector.
