The NCC Group Conference Dublin
Over 300 delegates gathered in Dublin last month, with esteemed colleagues travelling from across Europe, Canada, Australia and the US. A fantastic four-day schedule was arranged with a wide range of talks across disciplines associated with information security. The primary focus for this event was to facilitate the formation of informal networks across teams within the organisation. It was an opportunity for delegates to meet their colleagues to build relationships, collaborate, and discuss future strategies for the company.
Louise Ryan, Event Director at venuesworld.com managed the NCC Conference from start to finish. With the assistance of her event operations team, Louise lead the venue selection process with the NCC Group, negotiated rates with quality local suppliers, arranged the transport logistics and managed the event preparations, including the plenary set-up and the Gala dinner entertainment. The event was a resounding success, and the feedback from the client has been very positive, with ongoing communication in regards to their next International meeting.
“We are all very grateful for your dedication to make the event a success, and the time you put in during the week of the event was second to none”
Doubletree by Hilton – Conference Hotel Dublin
The Doubletree by Hilton was the perfect venue for this group. All accommodation, meeting space and the gala dinner was held within the same grounds. The Doubletree by Hilton Hotel delivered excellent service throughout, going above and beyond in areas such as complimentary upgrades and the quality of catering delivered.

Challenges, Solutions & Highlights
Due to the acquisition of various companies throughout the organisation of the NCC Conference, multiple changes were required for block room bookings and the allocation of venue space. Regular changes to the event structure can lead to complications down the line if not appropriately managed. However Louise clarified any issues with the forecast event size, and quickly and efficiently rectified the situation. This was the first conference of its kind for the organisation, and they were very happy with the management and production pre, during and post event. Client feedback from the event was very positive, and a rating of 10/10 was given for the service. The venuesireland.com™ team are now in the process of working on the next NCC Conference.
