Bid for a Conference

Thinking about hosting a conference? The Dublin Convention Bureau team are here to support you every step of the way.

The Conference Ambassador Programme

Fáilte Ireland, Ireland’s National Tourism Development Authority, developed the Conference Ambassador Programme to support individuals who want to organise an international conference in Ireland.

The programme provides relevant impartial assistance and financial support to Conference Ambassadors at every stage of the event, from the initial bid to marketing and promotion.

As a business tourism unit of Fáilte Ireland, the Dublin Convention Bureau provides practical support in bidding for international conferences or associations to choose Dublin as the host destination. The Dublin Convention Bureau will assist with the initial bid document, related costs and the travel and accommodation associated with the bid/presentation and will introduce you to one of our Professional Conference Organisers.

Why become a Conference Ambassador?

Our conference Ambassadors give the following reasons for hosting an international conference?

  • An increased profile and recognition of their University or Organisation. 
  • Enhanced reputation in their respective field. 
  • A raised profile of their work amongst their peers, both locally and internationally. 
  • Opportunities to engage with international colleagues and develop new relationships which helped form research partnerships, secure future funding, and establish worldwide links in the specialist field of the meeting. 
  • Knowing that they are contributing to the economy, as well as increasing exposure to Ireland as both an area of academic/scientific excellence and as a tourist destination.  
  • A highly visible way to demonstrate loyalty to their institution, city and Ireland
