The group is pictured with Caroline Phelan, Tourism Ireland (back, fifth right), and Game of Thrones characters (right), outside the Irish Cultural Centre in Paris, where the new B2B tourism event, Irlande à Paris, took place.

Organised by Tourism Ireland, Irlande à Paris took place in the Irish Cultural Centre and involved two simultaneous workshops and networking events – one targeting group tour operators and travel agents, the other business tourism and MICE (meetings, incentive, conferences and events) buyers. It provided the Irish delegation with the opportunity to meet and do business with more than 250 carefully selected French travel professionals – including leading business tourism buyers, group tour operators and travel agents.


Monica MacLaverty, Tourism Ireland’s head of southern Europe, said: “2014 was a record year for French visitors to Ireland and Tourism Ireland in France is undertaking an extensive programme of promotional activity throughout 2015 – to keep the momentum going and build on that growth. We were delighted that so many influential French travel professionals took the time to come and meet our industry partners at our new event, Irlande à Paris – demonstrating their keen interest in programming the island of Ireland in 2015 and beyond.”
