Conference Theme
Ireland: Future Proofing a MICE Destination

Our Conference theme is “Ireland: Future Proofing a MICE Destination”. We will be welcoming two highly respected international buyers, one each for Association Conference and for Incentive travel, to speak on where we sit against our competitive set and to gain an insight into where we are as a destination. We will be carrying out a destination audit with the benefit of international insight and expertise.

There will also be two separate destination pitches as an interactive piece for an Association Conference and for an Incentive Travel Programme. We will use that as a basis of a panel discussion to answer the key question of how we can future proof our MICE Destination with the benefit of our international buyer insights.
