Connect17 is a LIVE Irish Showcase of the events industry

CONNECT17 is an unmissable TWO day business to business marketplace

for those involved in the Meetings & Events industry to demonstrate their unique offering

and product experience. No other form of marketing can put you in a room

with so many potential customers actively looking for suppliers of your product or service.

CONNECT17 will give you the platform to conduct face to face

meetings with national and international buyers.



Connect17 promises to be the only event this year

that gives you an insight into Ireland’s culture, music, food, artisan producers,

hotels and venues, activity providers and top speakers all in a “live” environment,

supported by a pre and post familiarisation trip in our amazing country.

“Over the top impressed with this show. To have just one country highlighted and showcased

made it so much easier for me as a planner…
