THE looming Coronavirus crisis was one of the main issues to the fore last night as AIB, in association with Tralee Chamber Alliance and Kerry Local Enterprise Office, hosted an event sharing insights and marketing trends on the tourism, retail and hospitality industry in Kerry.

The event at Ballygarry House Hotel, was very well attended by people from all over the county who heard vital information for businesses in those industries, from a range of speakers.

Speakers included David McCarthy, Head of Hospitality and Tourism at AIB; David Fitzsimons, Group Chief Executive at Retail Excellence and Fergus Dunne, Lecturer in Event Management and Tourism at IT Tralee.
