Over 300,000 visitors are expect to attend the nine day event. 

A midlands tourism business is among nine Irish companies exhibiting at a travel fair in Germany. 

Offaly's Silverline Cruisers is promoting tourism in Ireland at CMT in Stuttgart. 

Over 300,000 visitors are expect to attend the nine day event. 

Germany is the third-largest source of visitors to the island of Ireland and one of the largest outbound travel markets in the world. In 2019, we welcomed 749,000 German visitors to the island of Ireland.

CMT also attracts leading tour operators and travel agents, as well as around 1,500 travel and lifestyle journalists, during the nine-day event.

Nadine Lehmann, Tourism Ireland’s Manager Germany, said: “CMT in Stuttgart is the first travel fair of the year for Tourism Ireland, providing an excellent opportunity to spread the word about the many great things to see and do in Ireland and to encourage German travellers to put Ireland on their holiday ‘wish-list’ for 2023.

Promoting Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands, Ireland’s Ancient East, the Wild Atlantic Way, Dublin, Belfast and the Causeway Coastal Route will continue to be a major focus of Tourism Ireland’s activity in Germany, and elsewhere around the world, in 2023. The organisation will also continue to highlight ease of access from Germany to Ireland.
