Confronting Challenges and Seizing Opportunities in Irish Tourism: The Role of the Public and Private Sector

The University of Limerick recently held the 8th Annual Tourism Policy Workshop at Dromoland Castle. The workshop brought together senior decision makers and stakeholders in tourism from the public and private sectors with the objective of stimulating the long-term economic contribution of tourism to the Irish economy and society.
The  challenges  for  the  Irish  economy  and  society  occasioned  by  Brexit, geopolitical turbulence  and  technological  disruptions  are  already  at  play and  are  likely  to  have  even  more  profound  effects  in  the  years  ahead.  Resultantly, the Tourism Sector must respond through serious analysis and identification of the “Strategic” responses required and how same should be funded.  The workshop facilitated such engagement by all who value the role that tourism plays in the Irish economy and society. 
This workshop is an initiative of Professor Jim Deegan, Director of The National Centre for  Tourism Policy Studies, University of Limerick.
