Dublin’s business tourism boosted with 5 conferences worth €5 million

Published on : Thursday, March 10, 2016

DublinFáilte Ireland confirmed that Dublin has received a significant revenue boost of almost €5 million with the news that four conferences have been confirmed for Ireland’s capital so far this year.

 

The range of conferences secured serves to highlight Dublin’s broad appeal when it comes to attracting international events.

 

The conferences include: World Institute of Pain, European Cities Marketing TIO Expert Meeting, Junior Chambers International European Presidents Meeting and World Congress of Psycho Oncology.

Welcoming the news, Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport Paschal Donohoe said, “I am delighted with the news that Dublin continues to attract high profile lucrative conferences to these shores. Business tourism is a very valuable part of our overall tourism product and performs well year on year. The fact that those who come here on business more often than not choose to stay on for pleasure makes it even more important.”

This news comes as the business tourism industry from across the capital gathered in the Conference Centre Dublin last week for an annual briefing from Fáilte Ireland where the tourism authority outlined their plans and targets for the year ahead.

 

Business of over €138 million is already confirmed for 2016 with a further €52.5 million still in the pipeline.
Looking ahead to the rest of 2016, Miriam Kennedy Head of Business Tourism with Fáilte Ireland said, “Last year was a record year for the area of business tourism but our aim is for 2016 to be even more ambitious with growth of 12% targeted. Business tourism is a highly competitive game with a valuable return but we, in Fáilte Ireland, are fully committed to ensuring we secure a large piece of the pie.”
