Tourism Ireland and Karryon are uniting to take travel agents on a tour of Ireland during Facebook webinars shaped to shine a light on a favourite destination that never strays far from the travel spotlight.

There’s never been a better time to engage in a little professional development from the comfort of your desk or even on the couch at home, and we can help you out there.

Tourism Ireland and Karryon are teaming up to take travel agents on a sojourn across the Emerald Isle discovering the delights of this year-round destination during webinars that will go out live on the Karryon Facebook page.

The exclusive events will last 30 minutes with each crafted to help agents learn about Ireland and secure the knowledge needed to draft itineraries that have clients stepping away from the tourist trail to discover hidden gems.

The first will roll out on Wednesday, September 4, at 5pm which means this training opportunity doesn’t cut into after-hours time.

Here are three more reasons to tune into the Karryon Facebook page – with or without a big mug of hot chocolate on hand – to hear the hottest happenings from the folks at Tourism Ireland.

1. HEAR FROM THE EXPERTS

Each webinar will feature spokespeople from Ireland’s top travel providers, with the characters that know the place best, ready to share insights needed to plan the perfect journey.

The first webinar will feature Visit Armagh which will offer you some amazing information about the dynamic destination that is the home of St Patrick in Northern Ireland.

As well as the famous Guinness Storehouse and their brand homes, Smithwick’s Experience in Kilkenny, Guinness Open Gate Brewery and the newly opened Roe & Co Irish Whiskey Distillery in Dublin.

 

2. ENHANCE YOUR KNOWLEDGE

The sessions have been crafted to educate agents that Ireland is more than just a destination. The series will bring to light how travellers that are keen on dodging the tourist trail will encounter experiences that can’t be replicated from the normal cookie-cutter itineraries.

Ireland is the thrill of standing on the summit of a seaside cliff gazing across the deep blue stretching to the horizon, it’s the warm welcome received in a traditional pub when the “trad music” is rollicking, and the contentment of trying gourmet goodies presented by artisan producers.

And each participant will brush up on Ireland’s three key touring routes – the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland’s Ancient East and the Causeway Coastal Route – to understand what all the fuss is about with the places appearing on more traveller to-do lists.

 

3. BECOME AN EXPERT

The Facebook Live Training Webinars not only promise nuggets of knowledge from Ireland’s top tourism operators, but everyone joining in can interact by asking the questions that lead to a deeper appreciation of the address.

The best part is by doing some learning on your computer in your downtime, you will be inspired by Ireland and build the confidence to sell the Land of Saints and Scholars.

The exclusive webinars and the unique content that will be included will give you a point of difference from other agents, making it that much easier to book more clients to Ireland. That’s a definite ca-ching!

To become even more of an expert, agents can also opt-in here to receive the Tourism Ireland trade magazine for regular updates on destination information, products, and itinerary ideas.
