'Team Northern Ireland Tourism' is set to take on 'The World' in a friendly fixture in Enniskillen on 18 May 2017. With top tips and team tactics from international and local players, we need a game plan to get Northern Ireland tourism match fit and ready to compete on a global playing field. Join us for this game of two halves!

At a friendly fixture in Enniskillen, we get the team together to review play, talk tactics and pick up top tips from local and international pundits.

The theme for this year’s event ‘A Game of Two Halves’ is focussed around ‘Team NI Tourism’ with an inspirational keynote address from Munster, Ireland and British & Ireland Lions rugby legend Paul O’Connell & current Ireland Head Coach Joe Schmidt.  They will also be joined by local talent Claire McLaughlin who plays for Ulster & Ireland women’s rugby teams.
These sporting giants will be joining forces with Tourism NI’s own John McGrillen, Niall Gibbons from Tourism Ireland and Faílte Ireland speaker Joan Crawford.  Across the day we will be reflecting on the year that’s been and looking to the future for NI Tourism.  Our keynote speakers in particular will be providing insights on tactics for success tailored for our tourism audience.
Our facilitator for this ‘sports themed’ day is sports presenter Stephen Watson.

Team Northern Ireland boasts top talent, team players and undergoes regular training sessions, but what do we do next to ensure we are ready to compete on an international playing field?

Who are our real competitors? Are they home or away?

What are we working towards? Do we all have an eye on the (same) ball?

And do we need to forego being 'man of the match' to be part of the winning team?

It promises to be an action packed day with an impressive line up of speakers and commentators.

Let's talk tactics!
