Our conference ambassadors will tell you how rewarding hosting an international conference in Ireland can be. In terms of both personal and career development, there are few better ways to ensure you stand out as a leader in your given field.
The Meet In Ireland team know that as satisfying it can be, a international event can be overwhelming to host unless you have the right team by your side. We have a tailored support programme in place and a team ready to help you exceed your international colleague's expectations every step of the way.
Ann O' Dea, Conference Ambassador and founder of Inspirefest, was someone who took that journey. This year saw the third annual Inspirefest take place, attended by international leaders in technology and science. Here she explains the supports that helped make Inspirefest a success:
We received marketing support from Fáilte Ireland, who also introduced us to the approved panel of conference organisers. By facilitating meetings between us and their partners, we were able to confidently choose a Professional Conference Organiser (PCO) to partner with, one we could be sure would help us deliver a successful conference.
The Meet in Ireland team is there to advise you from the early bidding stages to event delivery and work with partners and PCOs to make sure you can avail of all the supports available to guarantee success. Our chosen PCOs surpass expectations, go above and beyond for their clients and ensure you can focus on achieving excellence.
