We have partnered with organisers W2 Consulting as Business Advisors adding our expertise to what should have lasting legacies for this untapped market in Ireland.
We hope that Government, major sporting associations at home and abroad and indeed businesses will get a vision of, and appetite for, Sport Tourism and what it can do for the Irish economy.
Limerick has long held an international reputation for sport and the European Sport Tourism Summit takes this a step further.
W2 Consulting Director and event organiser Mark O’Connell says, “From the World Cross Country Athletics Championships in the old racecourse to epic Munster Rugby encounters, Limerick has long been leading the charge in the fastest growing sector in world tourism.
“Globally, sports tourism is valued at $600 billion per year generated by large scale sports events such as the Olympics, the FIFA World Cup, local active sports tourism such as the Great Limerick Run, triathlons, golf events to cycling and adventure races. We are well placed to secure some of the lucrative sports tourism market.”
