Clem thanked the agents for their continuing support in 2014 and looked forward to the remainder of 2015 with confidence. He reported that 50% of Lowcostbeds’ business came from its own stock and expected that expansion for the rest of 2015 would come from city breaks and long-haul.

Hugo Nascimento of the  Algarve Promotion Bureau stressed that Irish business continues to be a major contributor to the Portuguese economy and the emphasis was now on expanding the product offer outside the usual hotel, beach and golf to more of exploring the countryside and green product. Ireland is the fifth largest market to Portugal and January / February 2015 visitors increased by 21%.
