Attending corporate social events is crucial to the success of any business. However, it can be challenging to schedule business meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions (MICE) for small to large groups without a great venue. Luckily, there are many excellent places in Ireland to host your MICE event. If you’re unsure where to hold your event, here are some suggestions from our local drivers:
The Odyssey Arena
Located in historic Belfast’s Titanic Quarter, just minutes from the city centre, The Odyssey Arena hosts events of all kinds, from games featuring Northern Ireland’s only professional ice hockey team to concerts to Strictly Come Dancing and Disney shows. An adaptable seat configuration can seat as few as 800 or as many as 8,500 guests in comfort and style. The Arena provides plenty of space for exhibitor booths or public speaking stages, so you have the freedom to put on your MICE event however you like.
If the Arena itself isn’t large enough for your needs, the connected Odyssey Pavilion offers even more space at nearby venues like Odyssey Cinemas and W5. Just five minutes from the nearest airport, ten minutes from Central Station, and close to three major motorways, The Odyssey Arena is no trouble at all to reach. To take your guests’ experience to the next level, consider providing luxury transport from Premier Chauffeur Drive.
The Convention Centre Dublin
Ireland’s first purpose-built convention centre, The Convention Centre Dublin is also the world’s first carbon-neutral convention centre. As a truly modern venue, the Centre boasts amenities and services you’ll be hard-pressed to find elsewhere, such as planners available to help create hybrid in-person/virtual events. The staff can provide all the equipment you need for your MICE event, as well as cleaning and catering services.
Centrally located in the heart of Dublin, the Convention Centre is just steps from all the wonders the city has to offer visitors. From various brewery and distillery tours to museums highlighting emigration and local writers, the attractions make Dublin the perfect place to soak up Ireland’s rich history and culture in your off-time. The CCD is conveniently located near some of Dublin’s finest hotels, so your guests can relax in complete comfort when not caught up in event excitement.
Dublin offers more than just the Convention Centre: another venue, Croke Park, is highly-regarded for its event hosting capabilities. In fact, back in 2011, it won the prestigious Best Conference Events Venue award at the Event Industry Awards. Since then, Croke Park has continued to lead the way in providing ample space and stellar services for any looking to host their MICE events.
Croke Park’s Virtual Studio uses state-of-the-art AV equipment to provide broadcasting and live streaming services for attendees who can’t make it in person. For those who can, the Park offers 90 meeting rooms and eight conference rooms in various sizes, capable of seating ten guests or 1,000. The venue even boasts several banquet halls featuring award-winning catering.
A third Dublin venue, Aviva Stadium provides a purpose-built conference centre capable of holding over 1,000 attendees and 15 various breakout spaces for smaller groups and workshops. Each of these areas has all the AV equipment event presenters need, as well as Wi-Fi. With an experienced conference management team on hand to help keep things running smoothly, Aviva Stadium is the perfect place to plan your MICE event with minimal stress.
Serving as a hosting site for football games, Aviva Stadium offers breathtaking views of the pitch and the spectacular city of Dublin. The Stadium has options for indoor and outdoor events, business meetings to banquets. The Press and Media Area, with three translator booths, is ideal for international meetings, while the Havelock Area’s floor-to-ceiling windows and stunning decor provide the perfect setting for corporate dinners with impressive backdrops like the Dublin skyline and the sea at Sandymount.
