Paul Kelly, CEO of Fáilte Ireland recently visited the impressive €20m convention centre, Dublin Royal Convention Centre, the capital’s newest meeting and events venue located at Le Pole Square development at Ship Street Great.

This latest addition to the stylish and sophisticated Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Dublin and Velvære Spa offers a brand new, purpose built convention centre. Offering convenient, functional and flexible facilities from private boardroom meetings to professional conferences of up to 800 people and gala banquets for 550 guests.

Speaking during his visit, Paul Kelly said, “The new Dublin Royal Convention Centre will be a fantastic addition to Dublin’s business tourism offering. Investment in world-class business and conference facilities of this scale is vital to ensuring Ireland can continue to compete for for and secure major overseas meetings, conferences and events. As each conference delegate is worth up to €1,883 to our economy, the revenue generated by these international events is not only a significant contributor to the Irish Business Tourism industry but has an enormous impact on the wider tourism ecosystem such as attractions and experiences, transport and food and beverage.”
