Annette Kaiser-Rott, Director of Marketing, Visit California, was on hand to inform the Irish trade of the latest products that the region has to offer, including varied and innovative cuisine available across California by Michelin-starred chefs who work on the premise that: “They don’t give a fork”!

Access is always a paramount consideration when planning a holiday or business trip and Aer Lingus has flights to Los Angeles and San Francisco, which makes a trip to California an easy option for the Irish traveller.
