Iconic venue increases Dublin's global standing

The draw of the Convention Centre Dublin (CCD), which opens next year, is raising the Irish capital’s profile in the global meetings and events industry.

The venue’s size and facilities are opening the city to larger-scale meetings and conferences that it could not previously accommodate. It’s also opening the world’s eyes to the destination as a whole.

This was apparent, recently, when the world’s largest venue finding company, HelmsBriscoe, paid a visit to Dublin. The group of international site selection professionals was hosted by the CCD, the Westbury and the Ritz Carlton Powerscourt, with HelmsBriscoe stating that it will now be adding Dublin as a potential venue for its 9,000 existing global clients.

“It was a pleasure hosting the HelmsBriscoe team on the tour of The Convention Centre, Dublin," said Marie Lawlor, the CCD’s senior account manager.

"We are opening in September 2010 and we are looking forward to welcoming HelmsBriscoe's strong client base to Dublin from next year onwards.”

Maya Naji from HelmsBriscoe, who has recently relocated to Dublin, added: “Up to now our major congress clients have had to use other European cities as Dublin has not been large enough to accommodate large congresses.

“We were all very impressed by the superb architecture and flexibility that the Convention Centre Dublin will offer, and supported by such outstanding hotels as the Ritz Carlton and Westbury, we will have no hesitation in recommending Dublin as a great destination.”
