Gar­den County’s at­trac­tions pro­moted at hol­i­day shows

Bray People - - Kilmacanogue Diary -

THE Gar­den County was pro­moted as a tourist des­ti­na­tion not to be missed at two suc­cess­ful Hol­i­day Shows in Dublin and Belfast.

Thou­sands of peo­ple flocked to the two shows held over two dif­fer­ent week­ends as Wick­low County Tourism tried to con­vince peo­ple choos­ing to hol­i­day at home in Ire­land be­cause of the re­ces­sion that Wick­low should be their one and only des­ti­na­tion.

Over 25 mem­bers of Wick­low County Tourism used the show to pro­mote their busi­ness, and Wick­low as a whole.

Wick­low County Tourism Chair­man Tom For­tune says the feed­back re­ceived at both shows bodes well for the fu­ture.

‘ We are de­lighted with the pos­i­tive re­sponse to our stand at the Dublin and Belfast Hol­i­day World Shows. Events like th­ese are a won­der­ful way of ex­pos­ing a huge vol­ume of po­ten­tial vis­i­tors to the beauty of our county and the wide va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties, at­trac­tions and ac­com­mo­da­tions on of­fer.’

Wick­low County Tourism also held a com­pe­ti­tion which over 1,000 peo­ple en­tered. The next event where their stand will once again fea­ture is the Brus­sels Hol­i­day Show ‘ Sa­lon des Va­cances’, a five day event beginning on Fe­bru­ary 5.
