Australian Financiers Choose Dublin

14 Apr 2010

As part of its push to grow Business Tourism from Australia and New Zealand, Tourism Ireland is welcoming a large group from insurance and finance corporation AMP to Dublin this week.  The group is here for the company’s annual conference, experiencing the capital’s top meeting facilities and taking part in pre- and post-conference tours.

Orla Saul, Tourism Ireland’s Manager for Australia/New Zealand, said: “We are delighted that this prominent Australian financial group has chosen Dublin and Ireland for its 2010 conference.  It is very good news indeed and presents us with an excellent opportunity to showcase Ireland as a premier conference and Business Tourism destination. 

“Business Tourism is top of the agenda in Australia this year, to highlight the great facilities and good value rates available for meetings and conferences across the island of Ireland.  The excitement surrounding the opening of The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD) and the new Aviva Stadium at Lansdowne Road, as well as the investment in venues such as the Ulster Museum and Belfast City Hall add weight to our promotions of the island of Ireland as a premier conference destination.  The facilities on offer here now, coupled with the distinctive cultural experience, means that the island of Ireland is now an even more viable and attractive destination for conference groups like AMP than ever before.”

                                                                                                                                                        Jim Paul, Tourism Ireland’s Head of New & Developing Markets welcomes Steve Helmich, AMP’s Director Financial Planning, Advice & Services to Dublin.
