Tourism NI 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.
Business opportunities that will arise out of the £30m development works to the Belfast Waterfront, due to be complete in 2016, were highlighted at a conference held in February.
Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Arlene Foster has highlighted the important role the Circuit of Ireland Rally plays in attracting more overseas visitors to Northern Ireland.
Speaking at the launch of the 2015 event, Arlene Foster said the rally’s billing as one of the FIA European Rally Championship’s (ERC) ‘flagship’ events would ensure that Northern Ireland’s tourism offering is presented to a wide audience.
An inspirational selection of days out experiences for group visits in Northern Ireland were showcased at a recent event at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, Cultra.
The “Great days out fair” was organised by Tourism NI to provide a platform for the local tourism industry to meet a targeted audience of group organisers that can deliver business growth through day trips and help create some unique, themed ideas for groups to explore more of Northern Ireland.
Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Arlene Foster has welcomed the announcement of the Gran Fondo Strangford and Mourne routes and encouraged local cyclists to register for the event.
Commenting on the announcement the Minister said; “The Giro d’Italia, held here last year, showcased Northern Ireland as a premium cycling and tourism destination. The Gran Fondo represents a major legacy of the success of the 2014 event. Run by Giro d’Italia organisers, RCS, the Gran Fondo will be taking place here for the next three years.
