Tourism Ireland brought over 100 tourism buyers from around the world to Northern Ireland for the recent Meet the Buyer workshop in Belfast. During their stay, the buyers had a chance to experience at first-hand the local tourism product.
‘Music, Festivals and Coastal Drama’ was the theme of the tour operators’ itinerary, as they enjoyed a musical coach tour of Belfast taking in the newly refurbished Ulster Hall, various Van Morrison points of interest around the city and the Oh Yeah Music Museum in the Cathedral Quarter, before travelling North to see the magnificent Causeway Coast.
Their fact-finding visit was organised by Tourism Ireland in conjunction with the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.
Pictured taking in the splendour of the newly refurbished Ulster Hall are (standing back) Daniel Lim, Sweden; Róisín White, Ulster Hall; Paolo Montechiaro, Italy; (seated front) Christina Wallblom, Sweden; Hua Jiang, China; and Silvia Savignano, Italy.
