surfing tourismThe potential for more adventure tourism business in Donegal was highlighted this week, when a number of providers exhibited at Fáilte Ireland’s annual Adventure Tourism Forum in Ennistymon Co Clare.
45 specialist travel agents attended from several countries from India to the US.
A number of operators from Donegal attended this week’s Ennistymon conference, accompanied by Martina Bromley, Fáilte Ireland’s Head of Operations for the North West.
She says with more than more than 1,600 one to one business meetings taking place at the conference, it bodes well for the chances of the Donegal adventure tourism sector to build business into 2014.
She says it’s particularly significant that many of the visiting overseas operators have never programmed Ireland into their plans before and their attendance at this workshop shows that they are serious about bringing business to this country. Ms Bromley says Donegal is well placed to claim a share of that business, and many important contacts were made in County Clare this week.
Meanwhile, it was confirmed at the Clare event that ATTA, the Adventure Travel Trade Association, will hold its Adventure Travel World Summit in Ireland in October of next year.
