Visit Wexford hosted a tourism networking and information day at Wexford County Council where a new 64 page guide was launched with the support of the tourism industry and the County Council.

The detailed publication highlights the events taking place during 2017 and also outlines the Wexford offering under the very successful Ireland's Ancient East initiative.

Tourism Officer Siobhan O'Neill said 'Wexford has room to grow in terms of attracting more international visitors' and have distributed the new guide across the county and at trade shows including Bloom, The Holiday World Show in Dublin and Belfast and Balmoral in Lisburn.

Chairman Colm Neville from Visit Wexford said: 'We want to highlight all that is good and all that there is to do in Wexford and we are inviting everyone in tourism or interested in growing tourism in Wexford to come on board.'

Meanwhile, Louise Jordan from TL Marketing outlined the details of Visit Wexford's 2017 marketing strategy which included a national radio and press campaign this summer promoting Wexford as 'the place to visit' that 'creates ever lasting memories.'

Visit Wexford's website has increased by 11 per cent over the last 12 months with it continuing to attract visitors from home and abroad. In May and June 2017, Visit Wexford had over two million impressions through their Google ad campaign, which has resulted in a substantial increase.
