How Irish tourism can thrive again

This week, Into Kildare will host an informative day where David McWilliams and industry experts shall discuss how tourism and hospitality businesses can rebuild and reinvent themselves after the pandemic

 

 

It has been a gruelling few years for the tourism and hospitality sector, and it’s important to focus on how best to take a step forward. The tourism body for the Kildare region, Into Kildare, is hosting an interesting one-day event this Wednesday, 17 November where the industry can gather and learn about ways to thrive post-pandemic.

 


 

Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media Catherine Martin TD will attend the event, and said it is important for Irish businesses to focus efforts on their recovery.

“We were very fortunate to have a good domestic summer but we are still in a recovery phase and it will be important for key industry leaders and workers to come together and present a united approach as we look to restore inbound overseas tourism figures,” she said.

Guests will enjoy panel discussions and networking opportunities with colleagues involved in the sector, as well as a luncheon and a goody bag.

Keynote speakers include economist and broadcaster David McWilliams and writer and presenter Daniella Moyles, and the event will be MCd by comedian Barry Murphy.

“I spoke last year about the quick recovery of the Irish economy post-pandemic, and the domestic tourism market certainly has seen a fruitful couple of months. It will be an interesting and lively discussion and I’m interested to hear the perspectives of those on the ground,” David said.

The event runs at Kilkea Castle in Co Kildare, from 10am to 5pm this Wednesday 17 November. Tickets are available at intokildare.ie.
