    Fáilte Ireland workshops to help  tourism industry drive sales

    Members of the tourism industry today took part in the first of a series of workshops running from 15th to 23rd May, designed to help businesses manage costs effectively, increase competitiveness and retain and source new business from Northern Ireland, Great Britain and other markets in light of Brexit.

    The workshops offer insights and expertise from top tourism specialists on a number of topics including priorities for businesses in challenging economic conditions, ways to reduce costs through smart purchasing, how to build on current buyer relationships and increasing sales opportunities. See notes for editor for full list of contributors.

    Helen McDaid, Manager, Enterprise and Hospitality Development at Fáilte Ireland, said:
    “With Brexit on the horizon, many tourism businesses along the border are seeing a reduction in bookings from Northern Ireland and Great Britain. At Fáilte Ireland, we have designed a suite of supports to help businesses facing these challenges and our key message is ‘prepare and diversify’. The ‘Managing Costs, Driving Sales & Winning Business’ workshops are practical and action based, helping tourism businesses to adapt.”
