“Business tourism is an important, high yield sector – with visitors travelling for business purposes spending about 2.5 times more than the average holidaymaker. Tourism Ireland in Canada has a busy programme of promotions under way to highlight the island of Ireland as a premier business tourism destination in 2016 and beyond.”

 

‘Meet in Ireland’ is the official MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and events) brand for the island of Ireland, which comprises three tourism authorities, Fáilte Ireland, Tourism Ireland and Tourism NI, who work in partnership to promote the island of Ireland as a leading conference and meeting destination.
