Fáilte Ireland secures 2020 World Library Congress generating €6.4m to Irish economy

Published on : Thursday, August 1, 2019

Fáilte Ireland has announced that Ireland is to host the 2020 World Library and Information Congress (WLIC). The event will bring over 4,000 librarians from over 100 countries to the Convention Centre Dublin from August 15 to 21, 2020. The congress is expected to generate over 6.4 million euros for the Irish economy. The bid was lead by the Library Association of Ireland with support from Fáilte Ireland.

 

 

Tours of libraries, cultural activities and other events will take place throughout the week. In addition, various ‘satellite’ meetings will be held in Dublin and regionally before and after Congress.

 

 

 

In the first six months of this year, Fáilte Ireland has already secured 307 business events and conferences worth 120 million euros to the economy. The business tourism sector is now worth at least 760 million euros to the Irish economy and supports 22,000 jobs. Fáilte Ireland has identified the sector as a priority area as it helps businesses prepare for Brexit.

 

 

 

Fáilte Ireland’s Conference Ambassador Programme has been one of the key drivers of success for Ireland as a meetings, incentives, conference and events (MICE) destination.

 

 

 

Through the programme, Fáilte Ireland’s Meet in Ireland team identifies decision makers and influencers across various disciplines and encourages them to bring an international conference to Ireland.

 

 

 

Fáilte Ireland’s Head of Commercial Development Paul Mockler said that securing major international conferences like 2020 World Library Congress is testament to Ireland’s reputation as a top business tourism destination as well as the diversity and calibre of events that they attract.
