Over 60 agents joined Aer Lingus and over two dozen US suppliers from the East and West Coast, and everywhere in between, at the Taste of America Roadshow 2020 in Belfast’s Titanic Hotel. 


Travelbiz’s Don Shearer and Shane Cullen were at the event that proved bigger and better than last year with an increase in attendance despite the snow in Northern Ireland. Attendees were rewarded for venturing out in the poor weather conditions as the prizes were exceptional and plentiful with even Ivan almost losing count!


At the Aer Lingus Taste of America Roadshow Belfast, the top prize went to Nadine Lawrence (Hays Travel). She is set to enjoy an Orlando flight package which includes 5 nights Margaritaville resort Experience Kissimmee; 2 x 3 park explorer tickets Universal Orlando Resort, 2 park tickets for Kennedy Space Centre and a Kennedy Space Centre goody bag.


Other prize winners on the night included: William Elliot (Elite Travel) - hotel & attraction passes (Boston), Shenda O’Hare (Travellers Secrets) - 2-night stay in Tampa Bay with Zoo & Aquarium passes, Susan Goodwin (Travellers Secrets) - Samsonite suitcase from Bloomington, Carmel Curran (Travel Counsellors) - BDL Prize (2-night hotel stay, BDL gift Bag and goody bag from Yale). There were a dozen other prizes including City Pass from Seattle, one4all voucher (NYS), Wireless Headphones (Orlando) and some impressive goodie bags.
