The Argentinian Ministry of Tourism, through the National Institute of Tourism Promotion (INPROTUR), carried out an important commercial mission in Dublin, in Ireland, and Edinburgh, in Scotland, on 10th and 11th November 2016, respectively.
After participating in the World Travel Market (WTM) in London, the INPROTUR team moved to Ireland and later to Scotland to continue promoting the Argentinian destinations in the European continent. Diego Sadofschi, head of the Consular Section of the Embassy of Argentina in Ireland, was present during the promotion in Dublin. The diplomat was accompanied by several national representatives.

Two workshops were held In both cities. The Argentina World Friendly brand was very well received by the public, who valued the message of friendship and opening with the outside world. The appointments were useful for the private sector to have business meetings with local operators, who showed strong interest in promoting our offers. Both in Ireland and Scotland, the guests were able to taste typical Argentinian food, with our excellent wines.
