The sales blitz involves a workshop in each city, where the participating tourism companies will have the opportunity to network with, and sell to, hundreds of influential Canadian travel professionals – telling them all about the many opportunities Northern Ireland and the island of Ireland offers for group and luxury travel, by highlighting our heritage, culture and cuisine.
