Your first point of contact
As the first point of contact for many global business tourism operators, we’re responsible for helping meeting planners organise successful international MICE events in Ireland, a world-class destination for meetings, incentives, conferences and events (MICE). This unique country offers so many exciting opportunities and we’re dedicated to making them available to our international network.
Meet in Ireland is a brand owned and managed by Fáilte Ireland, the National Tourism Development Authority. It facilitates a partnership between Fáilte Ireland, Tourism Ireland and Tourism Northern Ireland to promote the island of Ireland as a world class business tourism destination. We work with more than 500 Irish organisations and suppliers, and can connect you with amazing local resources.
Free and impartial advice
Our Ireland experts are ready to share their entire wealth of business solutions and contacts, equipping you with free, impartial advice and assistance. Our convention bureaux are committed to supporting event professionals, meeting planners and incentive organisers; we’ll assist with all aspects of planning, from handling requests for proposals (RFPs) right through to finding the right venue or professional organiser to deliver your event.
Our team of association experts work with international congresses, conventions and conferences to deliver successful and inspiring conferences, providing practical and financial support from initial bids to closing night galas. Ireland is a high quality, competitive destination, and our MICE Supports Programme is designed specifically to enhance its international reputation.
Our Regional Convention Bureaux in Dublin, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Derry and Belfast are eager to provide local introductions, wherever you should choose to host your event in Ireland. Expert event teams at convention centres, hotels and exhibition centres are ready to help you build an unforgettable Irish experience and surpass expectations.
MICE Supports Programme
The Meet in Ireland Supports Programme offers a full range of free practical and financial supports for meeting organisers, to enable you to create the best possible experience for attendees. Financial support is based on the number of international delegates, number of overnights and location in Ireland. Get in touch with Meet in Ireland as soon as possible, so we can provide you with an offer in principle to include in your next pitch.
Only financial support applications for international corporate meetings or incentives with over 50 delegates will be considered during the bid stage. International Association Conferences with over 100 international delegates (where delegate registration can be influenced) can apply at the bid stage, or after the event has been confirmed as taking place in Ireland. Terms and conditions will apply, with all financial support subject to application.
Meet in Ireland exhibits at several international trade shows throughout the year. Visit the Ireland Stand at these shows to meet our team and find out more about Ireland's business event destinations. We also run a series of information sessions, in-market and familiarisation visits to Ireland. This could be the beginning of an amazing relationship with Ireland; contact your local Meet in Ireland representative to start your journey.
