The Irish companies will engage in one-to-one, pre-scheduled appointments, which provide an excellent opportunity to negotiate and exchange vital contracts for 2018.

 

“IGTM is another really good opportunity to showcase our world-class golf. This is just one element of Tourism Ireland’s busy promotional programme to encourage more golfers from around the globe to consider a holiday in Ireland in 2018,” said Louise Finnegan, Tourism Ireland’s Head of Business Partnerships. “Our message is that the island of Ireland offers international golfers the complete package – with some of the very best golf in the world, stunning scenery and the warmest of welcomes.”
