Each year the Saratoga County Chamber organizes an international travel trip to educate the community and business leaders about the strong connections Saratoga County has with other parts of the world. Last year they traveled to Abu Dhabi and Dubai and the previous year to China. This year, in conjunction with the Saratoga 150 celebration, the trip investigates connections to England and Ireland through the Thoroughbred Industry.

Travelers will attend both the Royal Ascot and the Irish Derby. They will visit the Woking Stud Farm, Coolmore Stud Farm, and Irish National Stud. Of course, other must see sites including a London City tour, Cliffs of Moher, the Ring of Kerry, and Stonehenge are included as well as a tour of the Guinness Storehouse and the Jameson Distillery among other sites.

Informational sessions will be held at the Saratoga Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, February 6th from 5:30 – 6:30 pm. If you have any questions about the trip, please feel free to contact Kathleen Fyfe at [email protected] or 518.584.3255 ext 201.

You do not need to be a member of the Chamber of Commerce to attend.
