We are confident that Mimi’s enthusiasm and expertise will enable us to drive our trade activity at a time when many require destination assistance and information. The creation of the Trade Trainer role highlights the important work that the Irish travel agent industry undertakes for our destination, particularly as the Irish visitor numbers to Malta has significantly grown in the last year.”
