Paula McAreavey To Leave NI Travel News

It’s a sad day at NITN headquarters with the public announcement that Events & Marketing Manager Paula McAreavey will be leaving the business after 11 years.

Over her time with NI Travel News, of which she started as a part time student, Paula has built the Events Department to be one of the most thriving areas of business that not only includes the annual Northern Ireland Travel Awards, The Big Travel Trade Event, but also numerous client trade events and roadshows. She also embraced the challenge of the last 20 months during the pandemic running virtual events keeping the trade informed and up to date on all relevant matters.

Paula said “I am really sad to be leaving my role here at NI Travel News, I have developed and built the events side of things for 11 years now and I have enjoyed every minute of it, but I feel the time is right to try something new for my career.

 I would just like to say a huge thanks to Jonathan who over the years has offered me invaluable advice and some amazing opportunities and it’s been a pleasure working with the team here at NI Travel News…they are all amazing! I love this industry and the people in it and I will always have great memories and friends attached to it.

 Thanks to everyone that I have worked with over the years – it truly has been my pleasure! The 2021 Awards were the best ever and a fitting end to my time with the company. The events are all in great hands with my lovely colleague Chelsea… so please get in touch with her for all things 2022

Director of NI Travel News Jonathan Adair was quick to praise Paula’s contribution to the business “I am so sorry to be losing Paula from the NI Travel News Team, her contribution over the last 11 years has taken our events to a level that is the envy of our industry.

The latest Big Travel Trade Event and last week’s Awards were such a credit to her hard work and resilience in these difficult times. She has my full support, and I know that she will be successful in her new venture.”
