“I am confident that TBEX attendees will be impressed by Donegal’s stunning scenery, rich culture, and warm hospitality. This event will help to further position Donegal as a world-class travel destination.”

Donegal is known for its epic coastal stretches, beautiful white sand beaches, and sweeping landscape. Thus, the county is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful corners of the Emerald Isle.

It is also home to a rich cultural heritage with ancient castles, traditional music, and a vibrant food scene. So, the arrival of the conference will no doubt solidify it as a global travel destination.
