Success Stories

December 4, 2019

European Outdoor Educators Conference

The EOE conference is the annual event of the European Institute for Outdoor Adventure Education and Experiential Learning. This was the first occasion that the event was held in Ireland and it was hosted by Munster Technological University (MTU) on its Tralee campus. MTU holds the UNESCO Chair in Inclusive PE, Sport, Recreation and Fitness.

The EOE Network is a vibrant association of outdoor education practitioners and academics from around Europe, with other delegates attending from across the globe. The three-day conference reflected that mix with practitioner case studies, practical workshops and academic presentations.

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.
