2012 heralds the most important twelve months for tourism in a generation, Alan Clarke, Northern Ireland Tourist Board Chief Executive, said on Friday.

The ni2012 Our Time Our Place programme featuring seven world-class events was projected to draw an additional 150,000 visitors to Northern Ireland, create over 600 new jobs and provide £24 million additional revenue for the economy in 2012.

“We are now more confident than ever that these figures will be exceeded” said Clarke.
