Event description
Tourism matters. It is a key driver of the global economy. Northern Ireland has fought hard for its share of the growing market - Tourism NI

About this Event

The tourism industry is thriving in Northern Ireland with Titanic Belfast being voted the world's leading tourist attraction, a new and booming film industry including Game of Thrones putting us firmly on the map, a rich food and drink culture and the ripple effect of The Open spreading to golf courses throughout the island.

In 2018 we welcomed 5 million visitors, spending on average £2.97m per day. The economic impact of this is great for our country and we want to help your business to prosper as part of the local tourism economy.

Ulster Bank Boost has partnered with Tourism NI to take a look at what other opportunities lie ahead for tourism in Northern Ireland and how we can expand beyond Belfast and the North Coast. The free-to-attend event will include a Q&A session with local businesses including Hastings Hotels, Further Space, Royal County Down and Mourneview Caravan Park, as well as what support is available to you from both Ulster Bank and NMD Council.

Christine Watson, Chartered Marketer, Licensed World Host Trainer and Newcastle native will deliver a Sales and Marketing session looking at the use of digital, collaboration and online reviews to boost your business.
