As we prepare for 2019, our aim is that when these travel agents return home, they will be better informed and really enthusiastic about the destination, which will in turn help to secure a greater share of their business for Northern Ireland.”Ireland has seen good growth in visitors from Australia and New Zealand over the past few years, with around 228,000 visiting from both countries in 2017.Tourism Ireland is rolling out an extensive programme of promotions in Australia this autumn, to grow business in the shoulder and off season months and to position us well for 2019.The programme includes a sales mission, an ‘early bird’ online advertising campaign, co-operative promotions with key airline and tour operator partners, email marketing and social media promotions.
