Citywest Hotel played host to the Dublin Convention Bureau Christmas business breakfast on Thursday 7th December, which was attended by a number of prominent players from the Dublin business and events sector. The event, which included a talk from world-class performer and TV personality David Meade, highlighted that €64M worth of business tourism has come into Dublin so far in 2017, with further events confirmed for the city and county as far out as 2022.
Sam Johnston, Dublin Convention Bureau commented at the event; “The Christmas business breakfast was all about thanking our private sector partners for their support throughout another positive year for business tourism in Dublin. As we look forward to 2018 and beyond, business levels look positive with events confirmed as far out as 2022. Fáilte Ireland's Dublin Convention Bureau has more exciting plans to continue to deliver more opportunities to bring those international events here. Thanks so much to Citywest Hotel for hosting the event.”
Sean Reid, Commercial Director at Citywest Hotel, Conference & Event Centre added; “The Dublin Convention Bureau Christmas business breakfast has all been about re-enforcing and progressing Dublin’s position as a premier conference destination. Our city has gone from strength to strength in terms of attracting international conferences and this is mainly down to the hugely positive collaboration between Fáilte Ireland, its sub business units and the huge range of tourism suppliers they partner with from hotels and venues like our own and event and destination management companies.
“In business terms, Citywest Hotel is well positioned to benefit from the hard work that goes into building and developing the city in terms of its international appeal to business tourists. This event gave an opportunity to thank our industry colleagues for their support in 2017 and re-enforce our desire to work closely with all of them again in 2018 and beyond. We were delighted to have the opportunity to bring our industry colleagues together in the refurbished Citywest Hotel.”
