That is according to the Shannon Region Conference & Sports Bureau who this week honoured 40 participants of the Conference & Sports Ambassadors Programme who collectively attracted  30 national and international conferences and events to the region last year.<br />
 <br />
The Conference & Sports Ambassadors Programme is targeted at increasing the Clare and Limerick region's share of the lucrative national and international sports tourism market. Hundreds of ambassadors have been actively working with the Bureau in recent years to help attract thousands of people to the region through a range of business and sports events.<br />
