It’s no surprise that a city as welcoming and entrepreneurial as Dublin has a thriving convention scene. It offers world-class conference venues and great value for money for both organisers and delegates.
The Convention Centre Dublin
The Convention Centre is the largest conference venue in Dublin with room for up to 8,000 people throughout its auditorium, meeting rooms and exhibition spaces. Based in the Docklands overlooking the River Liffey, it is right at the heart of Dublin’s Irish Financial Services Centre and just a short drive from Dublin Airport.
The Convention Centre is the country’s first purpose-built international conference venue and attracts all sorts of investment to Dublin. In an average year, this extraordinary venue usually hosts around a hundred events. To date, it has won over 50 industry awards, including the World’s Leading Meetings and Conference Centre at the World Travel Awards in 2017 and 2019.
Since it opened in 2010, the Convention Centre has hosted big events like Dublin Comic Con and the Retailer of the Year Awards. It has also been the conference venue of choice for the likes of Dublin Drupal Con, the LinuxCon Summit, the Hadoop Summit and the SAP Finance Summit.
