The awards, which were hosted in Dublin on 25th January, are recognised as the most prestigious accolades in the Irish travel industry; they are based on the views of an independent judging panel of industry experts and Irish travel agents, and provide the opportunity to reward the companies, brands and destinations that have done most to support their trade partners and customers over the past year.
Antonio Paradiso, Vice President of International Sales for MSC Group’s Cruise Division and UK & Ireland Managing Director of MSC Cruises and Explora Journeys said: “Being recognised by the Irish Travel Industry Awards is a huge honour and gives us the chance to celebrate all the hard work in maintaining our strong relationships with Irish customers and travel agents. I’d like to thank our Irish Trade partners for voting for us, they have been vital to the success of our business.
“Our Irish customers remain some of MSC Cruises most loyal globally and Ireland has had its best year yet with a remarkable 35% year-on-year uptake. This year, we began with the 'Big Cruise Giveaway,' offering 13 UK and Irish travel agents the chance to sail on our award-winning ships. Our focus for 2024 is on strengthening partnerships and offering exclusive incentives.”
