Nine travel agents from Spanish Agency, Viajes El Corte Ingles, who have an extensive network of more than 500 branches throughout Spain, are in Ireland’s Ancient East to learn more about the brand with a view to selling more packages to Ireland.
The agents are pictured with Nicola O’Riordan and Pura Gimenez, Tourism Ireland at Powerscourt House.
This is just one of a number of events designed, hosted and managed by Fáilte Ireland, in conjunction with Tourism Ireland. The buyers already sell Ireland coach tours along with fly and drive programmes, in collaboration with Abbey Tours, and have expressed an interest in growing more business to Ireland.
Ciara Sugrue, Fáilte Ireland’s Head of International Publicity, explained “Fáilte Ireland is delighted to bit a hearty ‘hola’ to these top Spanish travel agents. With overseas visitors now looking for authenticity and immersive experiences, Ireland has much to offer. With ever increasing flights and expanding new routes to and from Spain this market has opened up Ireland as a new destination for inbound tourism and we are determined to benefit from the greater potential.”
