About Dublin, the conference city
Conveniently located at the gateway to Europe, Ireland is easily accessible for UK, US and EMEA delegates. Dublin Airport serves 57 airlines, with 175 routes, and daily flights to all major UK and European cities. Ferry services from Dublin, Dun Laoghaire and Rosslare ports also make it easy to bring in equipment and goods from the UK and beyond.
Dublin is a small and compact city, with a great transport infrastructure, making it easy to get around and meaning nothing is ever too far away! Offering an excellent road, rail and tram network, over 10,000 taxis (with very friendly drivers!), and a fantastic ‘dublinbikes’ scheme, your will be spoilt for choice.
Dublin is more than just a great conference location. Combining a solid reputation for education and innovation, with great accessibility, it is no coincidence that Dublin is now the European headquarters of many of the world’s leading corporations, and a centre for academic research and innovation. As the home to many of the world’s top ICT, Financial and Pharmaceutical corporations, it is a serious place to do business.
Yet, Dublin has not forgotten its roots and is steeped in a rich cultural heritage that begs to be explored. All year round, the city is alive with music, art and theatre of all kinds and, of course, art galleries and museums abound.
