SMACC 2016 set for The CCD

The Social Media and Critical Care (SMACC) Conference will take place in Dublin in June 2016 and is expected to attract around 2,000 delegates to The CCD. The conference will be hosted in conjunction with The Association Specialists.


The CCD confirms five International Association Conferences

We're delighted to announce that we’ll host ECIO 2016, ICMA 2016, FIATA 2016, SIOP 2016 and WCFLCR 2017. The five international association conferences will attract over 5,300 delegates to Dublin, generating revenue in excess of €7 million for the local economy.


Favourable Sterling Rate

There’s never been a better time to do business in Ireland given the current Sterling rate against the Euro. For instance, €50,000 room rental at The CCD will only cost you £35,000 at today’s rate and savings can be made across the board on catering and accommodation too! So why not get in touch with us today to book your next event?


Dublin Comic Con

Dublin Comic Con will take place on August 8th and 9th and we'll be welcoming famous faces including actor Michael Rooker (Guardians of the Galaxy and The Walking Dead), comic-book artist David Lloyd (V for Vendetta, Hulk and Doctor Who), voice-over artist Billy West (Futurama, Ren and Stimpy and Looney Tunes) and writer Simon Furman (Transformers, Dr. Who, X-Men and Terminator).


The Drive for Five!

We were absolutely overwhelmed to win gold for ‘Best Overseas Conference Venue’ for the fourth year in a row at the 2015 M&IT Industry Awards, so we're starting our 'drive for five' campaign early! If you are a UK based event organiser, please vote for us for ‘Best Overseas Conference Venue’ in the 2016 Awards, and you could win a trip for two to Mauritius courtesy of M&IT.
