Niantic runs various events throughout the year at select locations, some are ticketed and limited to certain numbers, in 2019 700,000 people attending these events. 

In Europe these locations so far have been in Dortmund, Copenhagen, Prague, Paris, Barcelona and Stockholm, they were due to run a Liverpool event this year but was cancelled due to COVID-19.

So instead for their big 2020 event, they’ve sold tickets to allow trainers play during July 25th and 26th from 10:00 to 20:00 from anywhere in the world with many extra bonuses available.

Trainers from all over the country taking part will travel to bigger towns and cities to get the most from this experience, this would have been a great example of showcasing Clonmel as a place to visit and place.
