Maureen Ledwith, Director of Business Exhibitions and organiser of the show, said: “This year’s show was the biggest travel trade show ever held in Ireland with over 140 exhibitors. The RDS offered top of the range facilities and the opportunity for the show to expand so it was the number one choice for 2018. We are looking forward to an even bigger and better show next year, with more exhibitors, plenty of prizes and an evening of fun entertainment.” 

Pat Dawson, CEO of the ITAA said: “We’re very excited to be working with Business Exhibitions again to present the fourth annual Irish Travel Industry Trade Show. This show offers travel professionals an unrivalled opportunity to engage with the Irish travel trade at all levels, from owners and managers to frontline staff.

“As the demand for this type of trade show continues to grow, we are looking to the future and considering other possible locations for a sister show such as Cork. We would like to offer the travel trade in other regions the chance to meet with vital suppliers on their doorstep.”
