Eddie Rowan, Events Manager at Tourism Northern Ireland said,

“Allianz Garden Show Ireland show attracts great crowds to Antrim and this year’s Festival of Food will shine a spotlight on Northern Ireland’s rich heritage of local produce. The lasting legacy of the Year of Food and Drink has provided a firm foundation for events that showcase our delicious food and drink offering – and this year’s show promises to do just that. Creating great food experiences provides plenty of reasons for visitors to stay longer and spend more, contributing to the development of the Northern Ireland economy. On behalf of Tourism Northern Ireland I would like to wish visitors and participants an enjoyable Allianz Garden Show Ireland.”
