Fancy winning a “tweet” tour to Ireland?

Calling all social media fans. Fancy winning a mystery tour of Ireland? The International Special Events Society (ISES) has partnered with Tourism Ireland to offer three competition winners and their partners an opportunity to tweet live and blog as they tour Ireland.

The Tweetour (The Wee tour) will have social media at its heart and is based on the principles of a familiarisation trip.

The itinerary and planned experiences remain a mystery, but Tourism Ireland whilst remaining tight lipped, has promised some amazing surprises.

In order to qualify for a place at this unique event; Tourism Ireland have created an online submission with the competition closing on May 15.

David Boyce, head of business and sports tourism (Great Britain) for Tourism Ireland comments: “Ireland is a fantastic destination for the creative events industry; from ancient castles to little-known urban architectural gems and awe-inspiring contemporary design, our high standard of event facilities and great after-hours activities puts us in a class of our own. Inviting guests to share live experiences is a great way to showcase our culture and diversity in a dynamic and engaging way.”

The initiative will take place in June this year and in order to participate, entrants must be active social media users. The competition winners will be announced on May 18.
