It is proof positive of Portsmouth’s ardent support of the Olde Town business community. On behalf of the IRTA Global Board of Directors and all our IRTA members, thank you for all your support of IRTA.
Clearly, IRTA would not have been able to accomplish all that we have done in the last 10 years without the backing of our friends in the City of Portsmouth government!”
