URGENT NEED TO RE-INVENT TOURISM OFFER, SAYS REPORT

first_imgThe Irish Tourism Industry Confederation says today that there is an urgent need for innovation if the decline in tourism in the west of Ireland is to be reversed.The Confederation reckons a 37% fall-off in demand for tourism in the west of Ireland between 1999 and 2010, using the amount of bednights booked as its yardstick.In its new report called New Direction For Tourism In The West, the confederation says that, from Donegal to Cork, the hospitality industry needs to create distinctive reasons to visit. The organisation says there is a need to highlight the range of adventure and activity holidays on offer and greater promotion of the appeals of local heritage, local food, and the range of festivals and sporting events.It says that the organisation of the industry currently involves upwards of 30 public and private sector organisations and needs greater co-ordination and reform to eliminate duplication and deliver greater efficiency from scarce resources.THE ITIC wants to boost participation in environmental schemes the Blue Flag and Tidy Towns awards and launch a new best tourism destination award.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldaily Follow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.com for just €3.URGENT NEED TO RE-INVENT TOURISM OFFER, SAYS REPORT was last modified: October 26th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:tourism donegaltourists donegallast_img
