NITB is responsible for the development of tourism and the marketing of Northern Ireland as a tourist destination to visitors within Northern Ireland and from the Republic of Ireland.
The Northern Ireland Tourist Board (NITB) and Tourism Ireland launched a series of roadshows aimed at helping tourism providers across Northern Ireland to maximise their opportunities in key markets.
More than 300 tourism enterprises and stakeholders from all over Northern Ireland registered for the events in Belfast, Enniskillen and Coleraine.
A new handbook to guide coach drivers around the best scenic routes in the Mourne Mountains has been launched.
Supported by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board in conjunction with Down, Banbridge and Newry and Mourne District councils, Mourne Heritage Trust and the Federation of Passenger Transport (NI) the handbook is a comprehensive guide to getting the best out of the Mourne Coastal Route while travelling in coaches and other large vehicles.
Figures released today indicate that overall visitor numbers for the first six months of 2014 (January – June) showed a five per cent increase on the same period in 2013, with associated spend increasing by ten per cent.
NITB’s Dublin team has just finished a busy promotional period of consumer shows in our key market of the Republic of Ireland.
Consumer shows are selected based on their footfall and the alignment of visitors with NITB’s key market segments. Consumer shows provide an opportunity to have real conversations with potential visitors from the Republic of Ireland, allowing NITB to showcase Northern Ireland and its many experiences.
