Half of all conferences confirmed for Ireland each year are secured by an Irish Conference Ambassador; that’s why Meet in Ireland partners with top thinkers, innovators and researchers at home and overseas through the Conference Ambassador Programme.

Conference Ambassadors help boost the nation’s profile on the world map by drawing academic and professional peers and colleagues to our shores for successful events.
As a conference ambassador, there are many factors to consider before launching your bid to hold an international conference in Ireland. From the start of the journey, the support of Meet in Ireland and the Regional Convention Bureaux (RCB) combined, will put you on the correct path.
At Meet in Ireland we recognise the importance of business tourism and we want to encourage you to put together a successful bid through bid document supports, site inspections, marketing supports, access to media resources and the Meet in Ireland team. We can also assist in making introductions to local businesses and world class venues through our RCBs.
The Regional Convention Bureaux are strategically located across Ireland and are passionate about providing links to the very best of what their region has to offer. They offer free practical support and impartial advice with the benefit of local knowledge to help you find the perfect conference venues for your international event. The RCBs offer funding assistance, quotations, introductions to local businesses and promotional material.
A major step in the planning can be identifying and selecting a Professional Conference Organiser (PCO), someone to guide you through the logistics, operations and work alongside you every step of the way. Meet in Ireland and the RCBs can assist in finding the best fit for you and your event, setting up meetings with candidate organisations so that each can present a tailored proposal to you and your committee. Browse Ireland's Regional Convention Bureaux on Meet in Ireland and make that integral first step in producing a world class successful bid.
The Meet in Ireland team is passionate about the work we do to encourage success and find unique experiences that continue to set Ireland apart as a top class international conference destination. We have a dedicated International Team and Convention Bureaux Team on hand to ensure your conference in Ireland is memorable and successful.
