For Robbie

#Traveltradetogether

The Irish Travel Industry Awards is taking place in the Mansion House Dublin Tonight the 26th of January. One of the objectives of the evening is to raise money for a good cause which is done through a raffle.

This year we lost a dear industry colleague, Robbie Smart who worked for many travel companies during his career including Cassidy Travel, Travelport, Camino Ways and most recently Bedsonline.

Robbie died suddenly and is survived by his wife and young family.  As an industry we would like to support Robbie’s family and, with their permission, we have decided to donate money raised from the raffle to the Robbie Smart Fund.

We have had 12 fantastic prizes that will be raffled at the awards event.  These have been generously donated by :  Brittany Ferries, Irish Ferries with Kelair Campotel, Best4Travel, TUI, Spanish Tourist Office, Air Canada, Sunway with Hotel Fariones, Aer Lingus, Stena Line, Shannon Airport, Killester Travel and a grand prize from Island Marketing and Turkish Airlines valued at 15k!

We are aware there are many companies and individuals that would also like to make donations to the fund outside of the raffle. As the raffle is exclusively available to attendees of the awards event, we would like to give those not attending the event or wishing to make a separate contribution the opportunity to do so.

The ITAA has agreed that donations may be paid into its bank account.

Please use the reference RS fund when making a donation. In addition, if you wish, details can be emailed to info@itaa.ie The donations will be overseen by the ITAA accountant and totals will be made available in due course.
