How things change, Dublin one time regarded as the stag night capital has moved on through recession to now invest for the future. Dublin has invested €10 Billion in a regeneration programme of the Spencer Dock that ajoins the Financial Services Centre alongside the wonderful river Liffey.
Combining investment with technology Dublin now has a world class Convention Centre that has a capacity for 8000 delegates with the best technical support built in to make a stunning contribution to the future prosperity of Dublin.
The new Convention Centre has been designed by the award winning architect Kevin Roche and it features a stunning glass fronted atrium running the full height of the building to provide delegates a panoramic view of the river Liffey, Dublin city and the Wicklow mountains. The Centre will open for business in September, advanced bookings already indicate that this will be a popular venue.
Dublin is also is experiencing a renewed confidence in the hotel investment industry, developing additional capacity to support the increased demand created by the Convention Centre.The other significant feature is the Dublin Hotel Rates are now flexible again and very competitive group rates are available.
Dublin can now look forward to developing a strong position within the Convention market that will benefit customers with higher standards and provide much needed choice in the market place.
