Interested in the Irish Travel Market? Participate in Holiday World 2004!

Ireland was the 16th largest overseas travel market to the United States in 2002, recording 260,000 visitors. In 2002, Ireland outperformed all but 2 of the top 15 overseas markets to the U.S. Irish overseas travel increased 10 percent in 2002, and in a survey conducted at last year’s Holiday World, the U.S. was rated the most desirable destination for Irish tourists, and the top of Irish travelers’ wish list.

According to the Office of Travel & Tourism Industry’s newest international travel forecast, the Irish market to the U.S. will grow steadily through 2007, surpassing the 310,000 visitor mark. From 2004 until 2007, arrivals from Ireland will grow between 6 and 8 percent each year.

Participate in Holiday World 2004

The U.S. Commercial Service invites you to participate in Ireland's premier travel and tourism trade show. The Holiday World 2004 U.S. Catalog Exhibit is a great way for you to promote your destination to the Irish market. This year’s Holiday World takes place from January 22 - 25. This event is held every January in Dublin and attracts over 50,000 consumers and over 3,500 trade executives. This year, your destination will also be represented at Holiday World’s second stop in County Cork, a three-day show for both travel trade and consumers. Cost of participation is $250.

The U.S. Catalog Exhibit within Holiday World is sponsored by the U.S. Commercial Service and the Visit USA Committee of Ireland. Your literature will be displayed in a booth staffed by a dedicated representative from the U.S. Commercial Service. This year, in addition to the exhibition in Dublin, your literature will be included at a second Holiday World exhibit in County Cork.
