Keeping It Green: Our Commitment

Kerry Convention Bureau is constantly striving to work with our members to innovate and improve on new ways to be greener than before, pushing to bring sustainability to the forefront of the industry and at the heart of what we do.

We work closely with industry leading organisations both within Ireland and internationally to stay informed and ensure that we are adopting best practice, accessing current training opportunities and in turn, sharing these with our members.

We are committed to working with all our industry partners across the region to promote sustainability within the MICE industry.

Our objective is to make holding a green event in Kerry easy!
