A special podcast dedicated to the launch, in Belfast Harbour Commissioners, of the 2009 Edition of Ireland's Blue Book. Ireland's Blue Book is an exclusive listing of luxury accommodation in Irish Country House Hotels, Manor Houses and Castles, along with some of Ireland's top restaurants.
In the podcast I interview some of the property owners and assess the effectiveness of a very traditional marketing tool - the brochure- as a means of communicating. It seems that notwithstanding the internet, there are still huge numbers of potential tourists for whom a tangible marketing tool works when researching their options.
