MSC Cruises  announced as title sponsor

The Irish Travel Agents Association (ITAA) is delighted to confirm MSC Cruises as the headline sponsor for the 2024 Irish Travel Industry Awards. These prestigious awards celebrate excellence in the travel trade and will take place at a Gala Banquet in the Round Room at The Mansion House, 25th January 2024.


Winners of the prestigious awards are presented with the chance to boost their profile and reputation within and outside the industry.  Last year’s awards crowned Cassidy Travel as Travel Agent of the Year with over ten employees whilst Travel Escapes was named as the ITAA Travel Agency of the Year 2022 with under ten employees. Another big win was for Club Travel who won ITAA Corporate Travel Agency of the Year. The Irish Travel trade are already eager to find out who will be awarded with this year’s title.


The Supplier Awards feature a number of categories across all areas of the travel industry including air travel, tour operators, cruise lines, agency support, tour operators, industry service providers, trade relations and destinations. The ITAA Member Awards highlight the contribution of ITAA Travel Agents to the Irish travel trade industry.


Clare Dunne, CEO of the ITAA, commented, “The Irish Travel Industry Awards are always a highlight in the industry calendar for all within the trade. Not only is it a very exciting night of networking, it is a set aside time to award the hard work of our agents and suppliers over the year. I think it is essential that we show that ambition and dedication are extremely valued by the Association.”


She continued, “We are delighted to work with our title sponsor MSC Cruises once again. We have proven over the past few years that together we put on a great show.”
