Gothenburg, Sweden (April 16, 2013) – ArrivalGuides, the leading global destination information network, have signed two groundbreaking partnerships with the national tourism office of Ireland, Fáilte Ireland, and the tourism office of New South Wales in Australia, Destination NSW. ArrivalGuides already partner with over 100 tourist bureaus, but agreements with national and regional tourist boards that can add a larger number of new interesting local destinations will provide fuel to reach the target of 5 000 destinations (currently ArrivalGuides cover 440 destinations) in the network.
Fáilte Ireland will take over the responsibility for the existing 4 Irish destinations in the ArrivalGuides network (the Dublin guide is currently published in partnership with Visit Dublin) and add a further 7 Irish destinations to the network.
Lorna Lee at Fáilte Ireland points out some of the key reasons for partnering with ArrivalGuides, “We were impressed by the quality and quantity of ArrivalGuides’ distribution partners, by the performance measurement that their software allows and by how easy they were to deal with. We are looking forward to seeing our content online and the results!”
“We are already today the leading global provider of constantly updated high-quality destination information generated by the leading local experts, the official tourist bureaus. Partnership with national and regional tourist offices will allow us to add new destinations at a greater speed than working directly with each destination”, says ArrivalGuides CEO Magnus Aideborn.
