Venue – Dublin Castle Printworks and Conference Centre

For over 800 years Dublin Castle has been at the heart Dublin City and Irish history alike. This unique venue will provide a breath-taking back drop to first class content and speakers. Centrally located, it is a short walk from major city hotels and attractions and easily accessible to all visitors. Delegates, exhibitors and sponsors will be tucked away in the heart of the city behind the old Castle walls with all the excitement of the city on the door step but enough seclusion to ensure that a productive and enjoyable conference is achieved for the European Dairy Association Convention 2018. Exhibition space is limited at this event, and we are encouraging potential sponsors to secure a booking as early as possible.

The Printworks is the largest and newest venue within Dublin Castle, opened for Ireland’s hosting of the European Presidency in 2013. It is located in the lower courtyard on the ground floor of the Stamping Building and will house the exhibition space and plenary sessions. The exhibition area is well placed to take advantage of regular breaks during the conference, with a striking view of the old castle in a light-filled open plan area located close to the main registration desk. WiFI and electronic signage is used throughout the complex, and a dedicated congress office will be on site for the duration of the event. The main hall of The Printworks has capacity for 500 delegates in addition to 3 smaller conference rooms.

The Conference Centre, located in a refurbished old Castle building, houses another large conference hall (Bedford Hall) and a number of breakout rooms for use during the congress.
