‘An incredible four years’, says CEO Nick WaightThe Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD) is four years old this month – and it must be the envy of all other venues in the way it celebrated its anniversary – with its 1,000th event! It welcomed organisers and delegates of the 53rd Annual European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology (ESPE) Meeting 2014.
‘Since opening in September 2010, we have had an incredible four years’, says Nick Waight, CEO of The CCD.’Dublin as a destination and The CCD as a venue are proving extremely popular - with over one million delegate days to date. Our commitment to exceptional service surpasses our clients’ expectations time and time again, with customer satisfaction rates consistently above 96%.’
The three-day ESPE meeting brought together 2,500 delegates from all over Europe for plenary sessions, symposia, meet-the-experts and poster sessions.
‘The venue has been truly amazing to work with’, says Kate Sargent of Bioscientifica, the official PCO for ESPE 2014. ‘We are most impressed with the dedication of all the staff at The CCD and the very warm welcome we have had, not only on site, but during the planning process over the past year. We are delighted to share this special occasion with The CCD and hope to return at some point during the next 1,000 events!’
ESPE is the fourth in a series of paediatric medicine conferences held at The CCD this year. These included the 32nd Annual Meeting of the European Society for Paediatric Infectious Diseases (ESPID), the 12th International Congress of the European Society of Paediatric Otorhinolaryngology (ESPO), and the European Paediatric Surgeons Association (EUPSA) Congress. The CCD has secured a host of events until 2018, including One Young World 2014, the 17th European Congress of Endocrinology 2015, the Congress of the World Association for Buiatrics 2016, Eurospine 2017, the 37th International Symposium on Combustion 2018 and the World Congress of Biomechanics 2018.
