The Buffet Dinner and After Show Networking Event, sponsored by Andalucía & Spanish Tourism Boards gave suppliers and agents the opportunity to enjoy some Andalucían inspired food and wine and continue networking.

Commenting on the ITAA Trade Shows Pat Dawson, CEO ITAA, said “These two shows are highlight events of the Irish Travel Industry calendar. We hope members of all levels from counter staff to owner managers understand the importance of the event as it is an opportunity to find new suppliers and maintain business relationships all within one place and one day. There really are no other opportunities like this.”
