A new Meet In Ireland programme aimed at those organising Corporate Meetings and Incentive Trips offers a full range of complimentary practical and financial supports, as well as impartial advice and assistance for businesses proposing to hold meetings with 75 or more delegates in Ireland.
The programme of supports are focused on the very early stages of winning an event for Ireland so we would encourage you to get in touch with us as early as possible to avail of as many supports as possible.
Supports are tailored to meet the client’s needs. Starting at the bid stage we will host key decision makers to a Site Inspection. In addition, we offer funding to enhance and develop the destination programme by supporting either a Welcome Reception, social excursion or the entertainment at the Gala dinner night.
These new initiatives are available to the MICE industry to enable you to offer compelling incentives to both clients and industry professionals to choose Ireland for their next corporate meeting or incentive trip.
The level of support available is calculated based on the number of international delegates, bednights, location and economic value of event. If you would like an indication of what is available please just call the Meet In Ireland team and an offer in principle can be given to you.
