Over 30 executives from Shannon region companies have signed up to become conference and sports events ambassadors at a special event held in Dromoland Castle Hotel.

The event, which was hosted by Shannon Region Conference & Sports Bureau in association with Fáilte Ireland and Shannon Chamber, sought to encourage a greater cohort of companies in the Shannon region to assess how they could bring a national or international conference, meeting, incentive group or a sporting event to the area.

Mary Collins, Meet in Ireland team, Fáilte Ireland said that business tourism is big business for Ireland.

“It generates €581 million in revenue, with each visitor contributing in the region of €1,400 per visit, and supports 20,000 jobs. Ireland is a highly regarded conference and events destination. It has breath-taking backdrops and world-class venues. It is value for money, has a fascinating culture and most importantly, getting here is easy.”
