Major brexit tourism workshops planned for Leitrim & Donegal

Fáilte Ireland is inviting members of the tourism industry to take part in a series of workshops 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 which are taking place in Carrick-on-Shannon today (Wednesday) and in the Abbey hotel in Donegal town tomorrow (Thursday) will 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, and how to build on current buyer relationships.

Martina Bromley, Head of Enterprise and Hospitality Supports with Failte Ireland says Brexit will pose major challenges to those involved in tourism especially those situated in this region.
