Ties between Ireland and the US show no signs of loosening as Irish Premier Brian Cowen has this week been visiting the United States to attend a series of meetings with Wall Street executives. Speaking at the New York Stock Exchange, Brian Cowen gave US business leaders a report on the launch of Ireland’s €700 million innovation fund and our continued commitment to providing the right environment for multinational companies to develop in Ireland. Ireland plays host to huge conglomerates that are household names, with the European headquarters of internet giants such as Google and Facebook now located in Dublin.
Although Ireland, like the rest of the world, hasn’t escaped the effect of the global recession in recent years, the Innovation Fund is presenting a positive message of confidence and there are strong indicators that economic recovery is underway, with Ireland recording the fastest rate of GDP growth in the EU. Ireland fosters the growth of multinational and indigenous business alike and this dedication to progression will see us continue on the road towards fiscal recovery. The message is that Ireland is open for business and anyone who has experienced our world class conference and incentive facilities will agree. The latest addition to Ireland’s conferencing facilities comes in the form of The Convention Centre Dublin; a purpose built conference and event centre that will open its doors in September 2010.
The Convention Centre is more than just a remarkable design feat; it offers first-rate conferencing facilities and is located right inside Dublin’s financial hub and just minutes from the city centre and airport. The newly built convention centre will welcome business executives and delegates from across the globe, undoubtedly drawn to its state-of-the-art facilities and unbeatable location. And, if you’re looking to impress clients or reward staff, Ireland is the ideal location for your next incentive trip. You’ll find everything here, from vibrant cities to rural castle escapes, and with such a diverse range of activities on offer, we will ensure your incentive group steps back on that plane with just the right balance of relaxation, excitement and fond memories to keep them talking about the experience for years to come! Travel Solutions Ireland offers customized conference and incentive travel programmes.
