The Dublin Convention Bureau invited guests aboard the Silver Sturgeon for a trip along the Thames to celebrate its 10th edition of ‘Meet Dublin in London’.

For the 10th anniversary, this year’s event also included representatives from Galway, Shannon, Cork and Kerry Convention Bureaux.

More than 250 guests boarded the Silver Sturgeon Cruiser at Savoy Pier on Victoria Embankment for an evening of Irish hospitality, food and entertainment, with live music from The Brass Monkeys

"10 years ago we began the Meet Dublin in London event, inviting local planners to meet our suppliers on the Thames," said Sam Johnston, manager of Convention Bureaux of Ireland.

"Over that time we have developed an event that combines high quality networking with an authentic, fun Irish experience. This is a market that remains high on importance for Dublin and our industry – that is why we work hard to ensure that we have the right products and the best buyers."
