Spotlight on the Island of Ireland in Nevada

Tourism Ireland and partners promote Ireland to influential North American travel professionals

Four tourism companies from the island of Ireland have joined Tourism Ireland in Henderson, Nevada, to attend the annual Global Travel Marketplace West (GTM West) this week.

GTM West is a busy three-day event, involving a programme of bespoke one-to-one appointments and networking sessions. The event offers an excellent opportunity for the participating tourism businesses from Ireland to meet, do business with and to present to top-producing travel advisors from North America – ensuring Ireland is ‘top of mind’ for them when recommending destinations to their clients.

Alison Metcalfe, Tourism Ireland’s Head of North America, said: “Our presence at this year’s GTM West provides another excellent platform to highlight the many great things to see and do right around the island of Ireland to influential North American travel professionals. Events like this provide a valuable opportunity for Tourism Ireland and our partners to meet, and network with, these travel professionals, helping to secure a greater share of their business for Ireland in 2023 and beyond.”

North America remains an extremely important market for tourism to the island of Ireland. In 2019, we welcomed 1.98 million visitors from North America, whose visits delivered €1.77 billion for the economy.
