Interested in the Irish Travel Market? Participate in Holiday World 2003!

Ireland was the 18th largest travel market to the United States in 2001, recording 282,000 visitors. Despite the major declines in overseas travel to the U.S. in 2001, the Irish market only declined 1 percent over its record year in 2000. This rate of decline was the lowest among the top European travel markets to the U.S.

According to OTTI’s latest international travel forecast, Ireland will grow steadily through 2006, surpassing the 350,000 visitor mark.

Participate in Holiday World 2003

The U.S. Commercial Service invites you to participate in Ireland's premier travel and tourism trade show. The Holiday World 2003 U.S. Catalog Exhibit is a great way for you to promote your destination, products and services to the Irish market. This year’s holiday world takes place from January 23 - 26. This event is held every January in Dublin and attracts over 50,000 consumers and over 3,500 trade executives.

The U.S. Catalog Exhibit within Holiday world is sponsored by the U.S. Commercial Service and the Visit USA Committee of Ireland. Your literature will be displayed in a booth staffed by a dedicated representative from the U.S. Commercial Service. Upon completion of the show, you will receive a list of contacts made at the show for your follow up as well as the most recent market research available on the Irish market.
