As businesses continue to adapt to the current climate and look to reduce their carbon footprint, hybrid on-site and remote virtual conferences are set to become increasingly popular in the coming years. The team at Castlemartyr Resort plan to embrace this trend with the introduction of ‘Hybrid Events’ at the 5 Star Resort in East Cork.

Situated on 220 acres of grounds and woodlands, utilized by many companies for their destination and outdoor team-building events, the Resort is located less than 30 minutes from Cork airport and 2.5 hours from Dublin airport. The Resort has years of experience in facilitating large-scale conferences and events on behalf of leading international clients in the Pharmaceutical, Broadcasting and Food Production industries.

The Resort’s on-site conference facilities and continued investment in infrastructure means that as well as on-site meetings and showcases, attendees can stream and dial into events from around the world, take part in virtual team building, break out into separate broadcasts on in-bedroom viewing options as well as remote off-site viewing.

Highlights of the Resort’s Hybrid Conferencing capabilities include

• Five private conference rooms all with natural daylight and blackout facilities and built-in AV (Audio Visual) to suit your broadcasting requirements
• Complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, with Smart TVs in all guest bedrooms to facilitate live broadcasts
• Indoor and outdoor unique Team Building activities, with virtual and online options also available
• Partnered with ‘One Tree Planted’ ( to offset your carbon footprint with a tree planted for every delegate or attendee at your event
