[PAST] Connect Ireland
23 November 2023

Save the date - Connect Ireland is back!

We are delighted to announce the return of our flagship event, Connect Ireland, on November 23rd 2023, at the renowned Guinness Storehouse in Dublin.

A must-attend event for hospitality professionals in Ireland ahead of the prestigious IHI Hospitality Management Awards. Promising a packed agenda, and industry experts, reserving your place is recommended.

With so much change on the horizon for hospitality, we will dive into topics such as:

  • Sustainability in hotels- nice to have or must-have?
  • Talent Management- is there a way to improve the situation?
  • How will AI impact hospitality & is it here to stay?
  • Are Guest expectations changing the way we operate?

Refreshments will be provided throughout, including lunch complimentary of Guestline. This event is complimentary (free) for hoteliers.
