I, along with approx. 120 others, attended a hugely successful seminar organised by the Shannon Chamber of Commerce in relation to tourism opportunities with China, on 29th May, 2012.
The event was entitled “Chinese Tourism on the Move”
This was an excellent event and the speakers shared a wealth of invaluable information with attendees.
The speakers included Jim Paul from Tourism Ireland, Professor Fan Hong, Director of School of Asian Studies, Irish Institute of Chinese Studies and the Confucius Institute, UCC; Dr Lu, School of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures, NUI Maynooth; Professor Lin Xu, Visiting Lecturer in the Irish Institute of Chinese Studies, and Deirdre Hunt, Emeritus Professor, Management School of Asian Studies, UCC.
I would like to congratulate Shannon Chamber of Commerce and all involved in organising the event. Although I have recently returned from meeting with tour operators and officials in China, I know that the information shared on the day will be of huge benefit to us when taking the next steps to promote the White Hotel Group to the Chinese Market.
Full details of the event can be found on the Shannon Chamber of Commerce website.
