Professional Conference Organisers
Professional Conference Organisers (PCOs) can be trusted to organize every aspect of your conference from online registrations to dealing with venues.
Ireland’s PCOs are experienced in the organisation of professional association conferences, congresses and other international and national meetings. If you find you just have a basic concept or aspiration regarding a conference or event you would like to get off the ground, the PCO will be able to take it from this early stage all the way to fruition. From arranging online registration and the receipt of abstracts to managing the event in Kerry on the day, the PCO really does offer the whole package.
Kerry Convention Bureau can connect you to one of our associate member PCO’s that have invaluable experience in planning and running events in the region. These companies maintain a high professional standard in the organisation, management and administration of meeting and conferences held in Kerry.

For over ten years the Dingle International Film Festival has been bringing writers, producers, directors and cinephiles to this breathtaking corner of Kerry for a weekend of movie magic.
Home to many filmmakers, Dingle is also a known film location for the likes of Star Wars, Ryan’s Daughter and Far and Away.
In 2013 the festival programme was expanded to include the Animation Dingle Festival and in 2015, the inaugural one day Animation Dingle International Conference was held to coincide with the event.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate Social Responsibility is defined as a commitment to contribute to the economic, environmental and social sustainability of a community. The Kerry Convention Bureau believes passionately in the way Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives can enhance Business Events.
The Bureau has seen first-hand the positive mutual benefits that such activities can bring when organisations choose to integrate a CSR component into their conference, incentive or event when held in Kerry. CSR engagement can make a real difference to a community by bringing about positive change and leaving lasting legacies.
