Visit Cork is a public-private partnership that promotes Cork as a destination for leisure (Pure Cork) and business tourism (Cork Convention Bureau), is hosting a briefing seminar for those involved in the tourism industry on Wednesday 27 February at Vienna Woods Hotel, Glanmire.
Anyone with an interest in tourism or in attracting visitors to Cork is invited to attend the Tourism Industry Seminar, from local community and tourist groups, to festivals and events, to accommodation and experience providers, for an update on Pure Cork’s achievements to date and plans for the promotion of Cork as a destination in the coming year.
It promises to be a highly interactive, dynamic session with presentations from Seamus Heaney, Head of Visit Cork, Evelyn O’Sullivan, Cork Convention Bureau, Ciara Gallagher, Meet in Ireland, and Monica MacLaverty, Manager, Southern Europe Tourism Ireland. There will also be excellent networking and cross-promotion opportunities.
“We encourage everyone involved in the tourism industry in Cork to attend the Pure Cork Industry Day and explore how they can work with Pure Cork to enhance their business and help collectively promote all that Cork has to offer to domestic and international business and leisure visitors,” said Seamus Heaney, Head of Pure Cork.
The Pure Cork Industry Seminar will take place from 10.30am-1.30pm, with registration from 10am.
All tourism businesses are encouraged to submit their festival, event or business details to the purecork.ie website, which was launched in summer 2018.
