ISES UK embarks on Ireland #TweeTour 2013

Dublin TweeTour 2013, Christ Church
Today (14th November) the International Special Events Society (ISES) UK Chapter and Tourism Ireland kicked off their experiential #TweeTour in Dublin, the first of three live Twitter tours taking place across the Emerald Isle this month. 

Following the success of last year’s collaborative #TweeTour in Ireland, three unique familiarisation trips will be taking place on consecutive weeks throughout November in Dublin, Galway and Derry. Tweets between delegates and local businesses will form the content and experience as the trips progress live on Twitter.

During the all expenses paid trips delegates will experience all that Ireland has to offer the events industry, and treated to whistle stop tours of well-known established venues including Convention Centre Dublin, beauty and historical stops Cliff Townhouse for Oyster shucking to Galway’s Claregalway Castle, while uncovering some of the up and coming event spaces and facilities such as City Hotel Derry and their new 7th Floor suites.

This year’s tour dates will take in: Dublin – 14th and 15th November Galway – 21st and 22nd November Derry – 28th and 29th November

“Following last year’s success we were keen to host TweeTours again, Ireland has so much to offer creative event delegates that we are exploring the slightly more untouched destinations of Galway and Derry. This is a great hybrid event which will give everyone on the trip as well as those following at home a real-time taste of the unique event sector in Ireland,” commented Jane Hague, ISES UK President and Head of Corporate Account Development at ExCeL London.

“Once again we have received fantastic support and knowledge from the team at Tourism Ireland who will offer unprecedented insight for guests.”

David Boyce, Head of Business and Sports Tourism Great Britain for Tourism Ireland also added; “We are keen to embrace innovative ways of communication, these TweeTours allow delegates and visitors a unique opportunity to interact and experience our destination. We look forward to welcoming the creative delegations alongside ISES and giving them an exclusive experience of Ireland.”
