Ireland’s largest Travel Trade Shows to take place in Cork and Dublin, writes Shauna McCrudden
The Irish Travel Agent’s Association (ITAA) has confirmed that the sixth annual Irish Travel Trade Shows are confirmed for this coming April. The first show will take place in The Imperial Hotel, Cork on Wednesday, 6th April, and the second in Hotel Riu Plaza, The Gresham Dublin on Thursday, 7th April.
This comes after the ITAA, which represents Ireland’s travel industry, bringing together over 100 travel agent members and 70 affiliate partners, had to make the difficult decision to defer both shows in 2020 due to rising concerns around Covid-19 in Ireland. Now this year, the ITAA is hosting two shows for the first time.
The events, organised on behalf of the ITAA by Business Exhibitions Limited, attract over 100 exhibitors from Ireland and abroad, and over 300 travel trade visitors each year made up of licensed travel agents and their staff.
Pat Dawson, CEO of the ITAA, said, “We are delighted to be able to confirm both of these events for April. Events such as these are an invaluable opportunity for travel agents and tour operators to network with their fellow professionals and discover the latest in travel innovation, product demonstrations and new customer experiences from both Irish and international exhibitors.
“This is our sixth annual Irish Travel Trade Show in Dublin, and our first show in Cork which will open the show up to travel professionals in the Munster region.”
He continued, “The Irish Travel Trade Shows 2022 will be the first major gathering of travel professionals here in Ireland since early 2020, and we are very much looking forward to meeting old and new friends at these rescheduled events.”
