The RDS are members of:
Dublin Convention Bureau
As a member of the Dublin Convention Bureau we work with them to raise the profile of Dublin as a centre for Business Tourism and to promote the city as a top meeting and conference venue.
Dublin Convention Bureau (DCB) provides financial and practical aid for international conferences and associations bidding to choose Dublin as a host destination.
DCB can assist with the initial bid document and provide support towards the travel and accommodation costs associated with the bid. It will also financially support and co-ordinate site visits for your decision makers, and give you impartial advice and information on venues, accommodation and entertainment options.
DCB also provides a financial contribution towards the marketing and promotion of your conference in order to maximise delegate attendance and ensure its success, and offers complimentary maps and tourist information guides for your delegates.
DCB can also guide you through Fáilte Ireland’s Conference Ambassador Programme, which identifies and supports Irish representatives from professional associations and encourages them to invite their conferences to Ireland.
