Forty-five top British meetings and events professionals attended ‘Ireland Meets the West End’ in London. The annual B2B event – organised by Tourism Ireland in conjunction
with Fáilte Ireland and Tourism NI – saw the buyers meet, and do business with, some 37 tourism businesses from across the island of Ireland.

The aim of ‘Ireland Meets the West End’ is to grow business tourism from Britain to the island of Ireland. The event provides a valuable opportunity for the companies from Ireland to showcase and sell their product and to convince the British buyers to confirm their meetings and events in Ireland for 2020 and beyond.
