• TravelMedia.ie Networking Events

    For over five years now TravelMedia.ie has been organising networking events for the Irish travel industry. Click here to read what some of the media, trade and our sponsors think about these events.

    To view videos from past events, please visit our YouTube channel.

    All our events are invitation only, ensuring that only the key travel media and decision makers in the trade attend. Attendees include travel media from radio, television, print and online and trade from tour operators, travel agents, airlines hoteliers, tourist boards and other relevant travel industry professionals. On average 120-180 trade and media attend each of our events.

    Every summer we host our popular ‘USA Summer Soiree’. This is our largest event with over 200 Irish and international attendees. No other event attracts such a large number of US suppliers to Ireland. The 2017 ‘USA Summer Soiree’ will be held on Tuesday 11th July in the Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin. This dinner event is invite only. To read what past attendees thought, click here. 


    There is no charge for invited media to attend. The cost for trade to attend is €145. For retainer clients of TravelMedia.ie we have a special reduced rate. To sponsor an event, request an invitation or book a table contact, michael@travelmedia.ie, +353 (0)86 8583585.

    Our June event is special – it’s our awards event, where we ask the travel media to vote for their favourite travel products, e.g. airport, city break destination, tour operator, airline etc. Our 2017 awards will take place on Friday 9th June. Find out more here.

    These networking events are highlights of the annual travel industry calendar and have continued to grow in size since their introduction, mainly due to the fact that no other industry event in the annual calendar delivers as many key travel trade and media attendees.

    Past sponsors of these events include Etihad Airways, Blue Insurances, the Mexican Tourist Office, British Airways, American Airlines, Definitely Dubai, The Palm Dubai, One & Only Resorts, Visit Denmark, Cruise Baltic, Las Vegas CVB, Harrah’s Entertainment, Air France KLM, GoHop.ie, Tropical Medical Bureau, South African Tourism, Travelmood, Crystal Ski, I Feel Slovenia, Ski Centre Sandyford, Atout France, Royal Caribbean International, Kerzner Hotels, Amadeus, Czech Tourism, Prague Airport, American Holidays, Brand USA, Delta Airlines, Kimpton Hotels and Resorts, Jamaica Tourism, The Visit USA Committee Ireland, Barcelo Hotels and Resorts, PragueWelcome.com Turkish Airlines, Turkish Tourism Office, and Scandinavian Airlines.
