Connect16 saw fourteen members of the Cork trade come together to showcase the Cork region to a host of international buyers. This venture gave the buyers a taste of some of the amazing experiences the region can offer to an event or conference. Their stand featured sightseeing activities, crafts and a number of the stunning hotels including the Maryborough Hotel, Castlemartyr Hotel, The Fota Collection, The Clayton Silver Springs, Cork International Hotel and the Radisson Hotel and Spa to name a few.

Cork is a perfect destination for both large scale conferences and personalised incentive trips. For conference organisers seeking the perfect destination for their next business conference or convention, Cork has everything organisers require. With over 2,000 bednights available in the city centre and 10,000 across the county, conference venues with capacity for up to 1,000 delegates and a short distance from Cork’s International Airport, Cork is a destination that you should not leave off your list of potential locations.

Cork has so much to offer not only with its world class conference venue facilities but it also provides visitors with 1100km of scenic coastline, is the gourmet capital of Ireland and home to world renowned championship golf courses.

As the Lonely Planet have previously stated:

‘Everything good about Ireland can be found in County Cork’
