Bilbao-Bizkaia Promotes to Travel Trade in Dublin

Bilbao-Bizkaia brought a touch of Spanish sunshine to a dreary Irish autumn evening in Dublin at Smock Alley Theatre on Dublin’s quays.

Ruben Lopez Pulido, the new Director of the Spanish Tourist Office in Ireland, introduced the representatives from Bilbao-Bizkaia to the agents, followed by an excellent presentation by Inaki Saenz de la Fuente from Government of Biscay, who gave an overview of the product that Bilbao-Bizkaia offers the Irish tourist to the destination.

Bilbao is a city that has undergone urban and environmental transformation and is the object of much admiration worldwide. The great Basque metropolis and its territory, Bizkaia, the gateway to a special culture, have become, with sustained growth in the number of visitors, a required travel destination.
