Meet in Ireland is taking advantage of the growing number of corporate brands and businesses using the destination as a base for their global headquarters. The destination is already seeing an increase in the amount of corporate events that come to Ireland to engage with these businesses, and is offering further support through its Corporate Supports Programme.
Ireland is home to some of the biggest companies on the planet, with more and more incentivised to do business out of the destination. Alongside this, an increasing number of corporate events are being hosted within the destination, including internal conferences and incentive events by global companies with their head offices based in Ireland.
As well as this, the destination is attracting wider events by companies and associations looking to engage with these businesses and industries. Meet in Ireland’s Corporate Supports Programme was launched last month and includes practical services to assist corporate event organisers financially but also to help them engage with businesses and industries based within the destination.
“We’re incredibly proud of our relationships with the corporate market and we have a product that is perfectly suited to their needs,” commented Joyce McElroy, Meet in Ireland. “It’s a market we have a naturally affinity with so are actively targeting though a series of incentives and campaigns. Ireland has a great mix of high quality meeting and events space, both inside and outside, city based or retreated in the country. We also have an unbelievably strong incentive product, a big market for our corporate customers.”
The Meet in Ireland Corporate Supports Programme was launched last month and includes a variety of different services and incentives specifically designed for corporate event organisers.
