The Tourism Council is an industry-led board composed of employers and small businesses and representative organisations from the tourism industry. The Council will act as a sounding board and point of dialogue between Ministers and the industry.
Council members are leading figureheads drawn from across the Tourism industry including attractions, hospitality, accommodation, aviation, transport and businesses both large and small whose services are actively marketed to inbound, outbound and domestic travellers.
The council is co-chaired by the Minister for Arts, Heritage and Tourism and Simon Vincent, President for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at Hilton Worldwide.
