Fellow tourist guides and friends,
It is with great pleasure and anticipation that we look forward to your visit with us at the 19th Annual Tourist Guide Meeting and FEG AGM in Dublin in November. Our hardworking committee have been planning for the event for nearly two years and they have managed to put together a programme which includes many of the social and cultural highlights that Ireland has to offer. In addition to the committee a significant number of our members have volunteered to help with various aspects of the running of the event so you will also get a chance to meet them during your visit with us. Without sponsorship, an event such as this would be very expensive. We have had a fantastic response from many sponsors which helped to keep costs down and they are highlighted on our sponsors page. This year is the first year that we will have the facility of the FEG meeting website which was developed by Efi Kalampoukidou and Sebastian Frankenberger. This development will be a great facility for future meetings.
To all those who helped to pull this event together I say a 'go raimh mile maith agat' (a thousand thanks). To the participants I look forward to meeting you and showing you a special Irish welcome. Whether you decide to come for one part of the event of all three, I promise you an interesting, entertaining and memorable visit with us in November.
President of Approved Tourist Guide of Ireland
