    Meet in Ireland is the global MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Events) brand for the island of Ireland. It comprises three tourism authorities: Fáilte Ireland, Tourism Ireland and Tourism Northern Ireland, who work in partnership to promotion Ireland as a leading conference and meetings destination. The Meet in Ireland team is active in our target markets of Great Britain, United States, France, Germany and Brussels (due to the high volume of international associations headquartered there). 

    Fáilte Ireland works collaboratively with key stakeholders who wish to grow their presence in the international business tourism industry.

    Trade Supports include:

    • Numerous platforms for Ireland’s MICE industry to get in front of buyers, in order to generate solid business leads.*

    • Through our MICE Supports programme Fáilte Ireland offer a full range of practical and financial supports to help industry convert business opportunities to business wins.

    • Regionality and seasonality is a strategic focus, with a result Fáilte Ireland offer industry weighted supports to ensure a much greater dispersion of business to regional Ireland.

    * A lead is a client who has expressed an interest in receiving a proposal from Ireland for their event.

    Key marketing activities undertaken to promote Ireland as a MICE destination include:

    • International platforms such as trade fairs and shows

    • International ‘Fam’ trips/site inspections/Media visits

    • National Conference Ambassador Recruitment programme

    • MeetinIreland.com

    • Support of Regional Convention Bureaux
