The Europe confirmed as Killarney hotel to host major US Insurance company conference

Europe Hotel and ResortThe Europe Hotel will host a conference from a major US insurance company next summer. This is as a result of Killarney and Dublin being selected to host the event. They were selected from four cities that were shortlisted for the conference. It’s estimated that with over 2000 delegates staying for 7 nights, the event will bring a boost of over €9m to the Irish economy. 10 groups of 200 people will visit Killarney and Dublin over 10 weeks next summer. Details about the US insurance company are being kept under wraps except that it chose Ireland as the location for its 2015 sales force meeting. Dublin and Killarney saw off competition from London and Edinburgh. The event is being brought to Ireland in conjunction with Fáilte Ireland’s New Corporate Meetings Fund. Fáilte Ireland says the value of the corporate meetings sector is €100 million with each delegate worth €1150 a day to the economy – almost twice that of a leisure visitor.
