    Fáilte Ireland’s Get Brexit Ready Programme is a suite of industry supports designed to help businesses at risk or already struggling with the loss of trade created by Brexit.  

    Attending businesses will learn how individual businesses can self-assess their exposure and risk as a result of Brexit. Additionally it will provide industry members with a range of interventions to match their own business’s particular needs. Those attending will be encouraged to engage with the supports and tools available and to tailor them to their business.  

    Speaking ahead of the event, Fáilte Ireland’s Head of Enterprise Development, Martina Bromley, said:  

    “Brexit highlights the extent to which tourism is at the mercy of external factors beyond our control. However, we can meet our current challenges by working on those things which remain within our control - our visitor experiences, competitiveness, capacity and skills. To ensure this, we are delivering this programme to support tourism businesses across the country. We have taken care to design these supports in an innovative and accessible manner – allowing tourism businesses to continue to battle for British business while also diversifying into other markets with great potential.” 

    The ‘Get Brexit Ready’ programme has a dedicated ‘Get Brexit Ready’ web presence which is the Fáilte Ireland one-stop shop for all the relevant information and insights that businesses will need – from development supports and training programmes to insights and market intelligence.

    The website also includes ‘Brexit-check’ – which is an online tool whereby an individual business can input their own data to determine how Brexit ready they are - as well as links to a series of market insights, tips and research to help tourism operators to recalibrate their businesses appropriately to navigate through Brexit related uncertainty in Britain  and other markets.
