Ruben Lopez Pulido, the new Director of the Spanish Tourist Office in Ireland, introduced the representatives from Bilbao-Bizkaia to the agents, followed by an excellent presentation by Inaki Saenz de la Fuente from Government of Biscay, who gave an overview of the product that Bilbao-Bizkaia offers the Irish tourist to the destination.
