Tourism Ireland has once again scooped a major travel award in Canada as it was voted Favourite Tourist Board – Europe/Middle East/Asia’ in the 2022 Agents’ Choice Readership Survey.
The award was announced at Baxter Media’s Agents’ Choice Awards Gala on June 23, which is an annual signature event in the travel industry in Canada.
A leading travel trade publication in Canada, thousands of Canadian travel agents selected their favourite suppliers in 35 various categories – ranging from tourist boards, airlines, tour operators, cruise lines, coach operators and car rentals. Voters were asked to consider partners who have provided Canadian travel advisors with the kind of support needed to survive and stay positive during the recent crisis; keeping them inspired and helping overcome the hurdles endured since the start of the pandemic.
Tourism Ireland took the number one spot in the Favourite Tourist Board – Europe/Middle East/Asia’ category for the third consecutive year, coming in first place out of 25 contenders – beating out the stiff competition of France, Greece, Britain, Switzerland, Spain and Italy, amongst many others.
In welcoming news of the award, Sandra Moffatt, Manager, Canada, said “We are delighted to have been awarded Favourite Tourist Board in our category at the 2022 Agents’ Choice Awards and would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all our partners across Canada for their ongoing support and partnership.”
Moffatt added: “At this important recovery period in the travel industry, we look forward to our continued work together in welcoming Canadians to the island of Ireland in 2022 and beyond.’’
