The Convention Centre Dublin has secured 90 events in the last six months, including 32 international conferences, forecast to generate 55.5€ million for the local Irish economy and to attract over 37,000 international delegates to Dublin.

“This is great news for Dublin and for The CCD”, said Sam Johnston, manager of Failte Ireland’s Dublin Convention Bureau, “We are delighted to have worked with all those involved locally to help secure these events for Dublin. Such high numbers reaffirms that the city is a destination of choice for international conferences. Business tourism is very competitive but extremely rewarding for the city”, he continued, “And moving into 2017, we are pushing harder to win even more conferences for Dublin and look forward to many more announcements.”
The CCD also confirmed a number of international corporate conferences including Spark Summit Europe, Microsoft Tech Gathering and BioProduction Congress.
