Major convention bureau for Galway?


A MAJOR Galway Convention Bureau could soon be coming to Galway, as the City Council steps up its efforts to establish such as bureau.

‘Meet’, a voluntary marketing organisation in Galway, is behind the initiative, which would promote conference and event facilities across the city and county.

City CEO Brendan McGrath says he has urged the organisers to apply for funding from the council next year, so that it can be taken into account for next year’s budget.

Fáilte Ireland has committed to providing matching funding of up to three times the amount sanctioned by the council.
