CLOSING DATE 13TH AUGUST 2021

Tourism Ireland is providing industry support to help with the marketing of tourism businesses in the Great Britain market. Tourism Northern Ireland is assisting through a co-operative marketing fund for operators to advertise in this market. The Northern Ireland Hotels Federation will assist the industry to secure direct business by administering the fund. 

The co-operative marketing fund will run from August 2021 through to 31st March 2022 so there is plenty of time to plan and execute your marketing plans for the GB market. The closing date for applications is 13th August 2021.

GB Co-operative Marketing Fund 

Who: The fund is only open to TNI graded hotels, guesthouses, guest accommodation, B&Bs, self-catering and visitor attractions. Some visitor experiences will also be eligible.

The GB Co-operative Marketing Fund is designed to support your own advertising or PR in the Great Britain market. If your planned activity meets the criteria, the fund will cover 80% of your costs up to a maximum total payment of £10,000 per industry provider. You pay for advertising and claim back 80% from the fund.

Those who wish to avail of this fund should note that:

You can use any media or PR channel as long as it is clearly aimed at GB leisure consumers.
