We’re easy to get to (with numerous global connections) and once you arrive, experienced local PCOs and DMCs will be on hand to support you every step of the way — as will our world-class suppliers and venue teams.
Our support starts long before your actual event, the Meet in Ireland team will help you get your plans off the ground with local expertise and advice and what's more we will support your site inspection and connect you with one of our trade partners or local Regional Convention Bureaux.
We’ll also provide eligible conferences with funding for bid presentations and bid travel, so you can share your vision for an amazing conference in Ireland with all potential delegates.
Our full range of complimentary practical and financial supports will equip you with everything you need to Meet in Ireland — a hub of innovation, excellence and opportunities. Come to us as early as possible in the planning stages for financial support to help you bid successfully; or if your association conference has already been confirmed, funding can be used for targeted marketing aimed at increasing delegate numbers and gaining international exposure.
The Meet in Ireland network includes strategic advisors from the Irish tourism board, Destination Management Companies (DMCs), Professional Conference Organisers (PCOs), venue and hotel management and academic representatives. Our Association Conference Financial Support Scheme is available from the invitation or bid stage right up to the conference itself. Find out more about the Meet In Ireland Financial Support Scheme and see if your conference is eligible.
Our track record shows that Ireland is a spectacular conference destination — we’d like to help make your event spectacular too. Contact the Meet in Ireland Association Conference team today to get started.
Our financial supports are available from the start, and include bid proposals and site inspections, and the Conference Supports Fund. A range of supports are on hand to ensure your experience in Ireland will be successful and rewarding for your company/association and your international delegates. We start right from the beginning, and so should you. Contact the Meet in Ireland team as early as possible in the planning stages, to avail of the full range of our practical and financial support.
