The Argentinian ministry of tourism, through the National Institute of Tourism Promotion, carried out an important commercial mission to Dublin, Ireland, and Edinburgh, Scotland, earlier.
After participating in the World Travel Market in London, the INPROTUR team moved to Ireland and later to Scotland to continue promoting the Argentinian destinations in the European continent.
Diego Sadofschi, head of the Consular Section of the Embassy of Argentina in Ireland, was present during the promotion in Dublin.
The diplomat was accompanied by several national representatives.
Two workshops were held in both cities.
Sadofschi said: “The Argentina World Friendly brand was very well received by the public, who valued the message of friendship and opening with the outside world.
“The appointments were useful for the private sector to have business meetings with local operators, who showed strong interest in promoting our offers.
“Both in Ireland and Scotland, the guests were able to taste typical Argentinian food, with our excellent wines.”
Arrivals of British tourists in the first ten months of the year grew four per cent compared to the same period of 2015.
More than 35,000 travellers from the UK arrived in our territory from January to October of the current year, while throughout 2015 Argentina received 43,962 tourists.
The highest number of arrivals was between January and March.
