Pat Dawson, CEO of the ITAA, said, “The Irish Travel Industry Shows 2022 will be like no other. The travel industry has a huge appetite to get back out and to see what the various suppliers and destinations have to offer.  And these Shows are already proving to be bigger than ever before. They are an invaluable opportunity for travel agents and tour operators to network with their fellow professionals and discover the latest in travel innovation, product demonstrations and new customer experiences from both Irish and international exhibitors.”

“While this is our sixth annual Irish Travel Trade Show in Dublin, it is our first show in Cork which will open the show up to travel professionals in the Munster region. We’re looking forward to welcoming professionals from all levels of the travel trade, with more exhibitors to meet and more opportunities for networking this year.”
