Planning Advice

If you’re planning a conference or corporate meeting in Ireland, there are several things you will need to consider. We have a comprehensive checklist to help your planning go smoothly. If you would prefer to make a tailored list here are some things to add to it:
• Starting Off
• Getting Moving
• The Next Step
• Bringing in the Professionals

Starting Off

  • Have you determined the objectives of your event?
  • Have you determined whether your event is intended to train, motivate, launch a product, initiative or programme, or provide information?
  • Have you defined how long you want the event to run?
  • Have you thought about whether spouses will be invited?

Getting Moving

  • Have you been provided with a complete listing of venues and hotels?
  • Have you a copy of the Conference Checklist?
  • Are you aware of transport facilities?
  • Do you know what places of interest and amenities are close to the venues you are considering?
  • Does the venue have any references from previous events that you can check?
  • Is there a good range of entertainment and social activities nearby?
  • Is there a high standard of facilities at the venue to meet all your needs, and are there good catering and in-house services?
  • Are you aware of any local events or public holidays that may interfere with your timetable?

The Next Steps

  • A site inspection of the venue is recommended to ensure you are happy with your choice.
  • Make sure you are absolutely certain of all the terms and conditions, restrictions and added costs at the venue before you book.

Bringing in the Professionals

  • Do you have a comprehensive list of Professional Organisers?
  • Make sure to ask organisers and event managers to list all the services they provide.
  • If you are organising a conference, do you need to seek sources of financial support? Do you have a delegate registration fee?
  • What insurance will you need?
