World Canals Conference in Athlone this September

By | News

Every year the World Canals Conference brings together hundreds of canal and waterway enthusiasts, professionals and academics from around the world. We are delighted to be attending the conference this year which will be hosted in Athlone

During the conference delegates exchange ideas about canal development and ways of promoting tourism and invigorating rural economic development and urban renewal are explored.

The theme for this year is Restore Regenerate Reimagine. We are looking forward to meeting with delegates in the exhibition hall to discuss our mission to promote economic development and job creation across the north midlands of Ireland and in particular the investment and enhancement of the tourism offering in the region. We will also be making a joint presentation with Inland Fisheries Ireland entitled Rejuvenating Angling Tourism: A Collaborative Approach
