Meet in Ireland Supports
As a brand owned and managed by Fáilte Ireland, Meet in Ireland is designed to help you deliver exceptional experiences every time you bring delegates to Ireland. That’s why we offer a range of financial supports to enhance your programme, create unique experiences and exceed all your delegates’ expectations.
Fáilte Ireland (the National Tourism Development Authority) has recently increased the Meet in Ireland Financial Support Fund as part of our COVID-19 Response Scheme.
Temporary amendments include our Subvention Support being increased from €10 to a flat fee of €30 for each international delegate for groups of a minimum of 50 international delegates for Corporate meetings or Incentive groups and for groups of a minimum of 100 international delegates for Association conferences, up to a maximum of €100,000. An additional €1,000 will also be available to support the costs of hosting a virtual site inspection.
Additional funding is only applicable for applications received up to 31st December 2022, per the MICE Support Guidelines and Site Inspection Guidelines linked below — please download the following documents for more information:
If you want to host an association conference meeting in Ireland, contact us before the bidding process is complete. We can help you create the fantastic bid documents and presentations you need to bring your MICE activities to Ireland. Additionally, we provide financial support available to reduce costs incurred as part of the bidding process itself.
Often, site inspections are the key to a successful bid; in partnership with Ireland’s Regional Convention Bureaux (RCBs), we can support the costs of travel and accommodation for up to three key decision-makers visiting Ireland for a future MICE event.
Once your conference is confirmed for Ireland, we’ll offer marketing funding to help you to promote your programme and to attract even more international delegates. This support can be used to fund a ‘wow event’ — one that will make your programme even more attractive to potential delegates.
This can be a gala dinner in Christ Church Cathedral, a welcome drinks reception in the Guinness Storehouse Gravity Bar (with panoramic views of Dublin City) or an adventure experience on the world-famous Killarney lakes. If you can dream it, Fáilte Ireland's Meet in Ireland Financial Supports Fund could help make it happen!
Corporate meetings and incentives
When it comes to corporate meetings and incentives, we offer financial support for site inspections in Ireland for up to three key decision-makers — helping to cover flights, transport, accommodation and the cost of meals.
Once your meeting or incentive program is confirmed for Ireland, our Programme Enhancement Fund can support activities such as welcome receptions, gala dinners, and entertainment, ensuring a successful and even more memorable event for you and your delegates.
