What we did this month – July 2019


We’re over halfway through the year and things haven’t slowed down for us here at TravelMedia.ie!

Read on to see what we got up to during the month of July.

Michael attended the Visit USA Ball

July started off with a bang as Michael attended the annual Visit USA Ball in London. The ball was attended by key travel trade and media and Michael attended on behalf of Bradley International Airport (BDL).

2019 USA Summer Soirée

The annual 2019 USA Summer Soirée took place in the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel. Just under 200 members of the Irish travel trade and media gathered together for drinks, dinner and plenty of learnings. Sponsors on the evening were Dublin Airport, Brand USA, Aer Lingus, Visit Tampa Bay, Countryside of Philadelphia and SeaWorld.
