We launched our programme in Galway…

Irish pubs meet the worldHere in our Galway office, excitement is building about our upcoming convention. This week, we launched our programme in the Galway Chamber of Commerce – it was a chance to tell our neighbours about what we were planning, and also to ask them to be sure to invite their pub-owning friends and family members over to join us for what is sure to be both a really useful business event and a lot of fun.

Do plan to join us in Galway from 21st – 23rd September. See our brochure, and you can also book online on our website.

Of course we took photos of the day! You can see them up on our Facebook page. And we got a nice writeup in the Galway Independent:

Pub owners accustomed to propping up the bar will descend on Galway next month for an unique round table. An Irish bar owners’ convention will take place in the city next month, organised by IrishPubsGlobal.com, a new network for Irish bar owners and managers around the world and outside Ireland.

It is hoped the convention will bring back pub owners from all over the world for seminars on Irish food, drink and tourism; practical tips from workshops on topics like marketing, branding, stocktaking and lowering costs; plenty of networking and, of course, some Galway-branded fun along the way.

President of Irish Pubs Global Enda O’Coineen said the event would be a great opportunity to showcase Galway’s thriving pub scene and connect Galway around the world.

“We also want to promote Ireland and support worthwhile projects, from sending customers on holidays to Ireland and buying Irish food and products.”

There’ll be some special guests in attendance, including Rory Guinness, an eighth direct descendent of the man himself, representatives from Bord Bia, Tourism Ireland, Diageo and Irish Distillers.

The conference will also nicely coincide with the Arthur’s Day festivities, which will take place after the close of the conference, while attendees are also being encouraged to stay on for the fun of the 56th annual Galway Oyster Festival.

As well as the Arthur’s day celebrations and the convention, a golf competition will be held for attendees and a range of good food, drink and music will feature each evening.

Irish Pubs Global is encouraging anyone in Galway who knows the owners or managers in the great diaspora of Irish pubs to encourage them to come to Galway for the Convention. The event takes at the Galway Bay Hotel from Tuesday 21 to Thursday 23 September.
