Over 650 travel agents from Germany and Austria will descend on Killarney later this year as part of a major tourism conference. DERTOUR is Germany’s largest tour operator and the Kerry town had to beat off stiff competition from the likes of Portugal to host the event in November. The company brings around 40 thousand German visitors to Ireland every year and it’s hoped the event will benefit the Kerry tourism industry. However Kevin Keogh, Vice President of Marketing and Sales of Der Tour, says German customers criticise the lack of Irish people working in the sector here.
