Meet in Ireland launches support programme for corporate events

Meet In Ireland, the official meetings, incentives, conference and events brand and website for Ireland, has launched a programme aimed at those organising corporate meetings and incentive trips, offering complimentary practical and financial support.

The programme will also give impartial advice and is aimed at businesses proposing to hold meetings with 75 or more delegates in Ireland. Support is focused on the very early stages of winning an event for Ireland and is tailored to meet the client’s needs.

Starting at the bid stage, the programme aims to host key decision makers on a site inspection, as well as offering funding to enhance and develop the destination programme by supporting either a welcome reception, social excursion or the entertainment at a gala dinner night.

The level of support available is calculated based on the number of international delegates, bednights, location and economic value of events. Initial enquiries for funding or supports can be accessed through the Meet in Ireland website.
