ITIA Awards a Gala Performance

#Traveltradetogether

There were more sequins than you could shake a spangle at and more glamour than seen on red carpets anywhere! It all kicked off with the ITAA drinks reception in Café en Seine on Dublin’s Dawson Street where Prosecco flowed and the ladies graced us with stunning evening gowns (strapless, feather boas, sheaths, satin and velvet much in evidence) and the gentlemen stepped up to the fashion plate with terrific tuxedos and snow-white pleated shirts. Off to the iconic Mansion House where the party was all ready to explode with excitement. The atmosphere was electric and the mood euphoric. Glittering table settings, romantic candlelight and shimmering chandeliers set the scene for a night to remember. Pat Dawson (ITAA CEO) and the tireless Jean and Lorraine, Kathryn and Laura from Limelight Communications, Eoghan Corry (marvellous MC for the evening) and Paul Hackett (ITAA President) all played their part to ensure a fantastic night of revelry for the travel agents, tour operators, airlines, cruise specialists and suppliers who jammed the room. The poignancy of Robbie Smart’s memory was not lost on anyone and the heart-rending acknowledgement from his wife, Emma, was extraordinarily brave.
