Marketing Support and Workshops
Co-operative Marketing Support
Tourism Ireland's co-operative marketing programmes cover a range of joint partner-led activities designed to promote the island of Ireland as a holiday destination. Campaigns are co-operatively funded and approved by Tourism Ireland.
Travel trade partners must complete an application form for discussion, agreement and approval. Once approved, Tourism Ireland will match up to 50% of the total investment in the marketing activity subject to certain conditions. The Tourism Ireland contribution is inclusive of VAT. Programme objectives must be agreed in advance and the partner should indicate how performance of the programme will be measured.
For more information and an application form, please contact your local Tourism Ireland market representative.
