Hastings Hotels has appointed a new Luxury Leisure Sales Manager for the group’s seven properties. Eoin McGrath has 10 years’ experience in the hospitality industry and has worked for Hastings Hotels for three years.
Eoin said: “I will sell the luxury accommodation that we offer in Northern Ireland, working with travel advisors to create the perfect itinerary for the North American and developing markets. Many of the advisors throughout the world have a client base worth US$8 million per year of travel, so it is a lucrative market to generate revenue. I will showcase the fabulous portfolio we have to offer, therefore when a client enquiry arrives with the travel advisor for Belfast or beyond, they know the perfect Hastings Hotel to which to send the clients.
“I have attended many travel events in 2018 and I look forward to attending a greater variety in 2019 such as New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, Istanbul, and the largest show of the year at Virtuoso Travel Week in Las Vegas to showcase Northern Ireland as a new, up and coming and unique destination for international travel. I will continue to highlight Hastings Hotels as the best place to stay when visiting the region. The relationships I make with travel advisors are created within only a few minutes of meeting – many of whom I have got to know as friends and stayed at their family homes when travelling throughout the USA.”
