The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD) has won the award for ‘Best Venue’ in the supplier category at the C&IT Awards 2021. This award recognises UK and international conference venues that have had a standout year for B2B events.
The CCD was awarded the title at the first face-to-face C&IT Awards held since the pandemic began. C&IT welcomed back event professionals to celebrate their achievements at the Londoner Hotel in Leicester Square on Friday 17th September. The C&IT Awards were voted for by a panel of expert judges from within the MICE industry.
This is the fourth time The CCD has won at the C&IT Awards, having also taken home ‘Best Venue’ at last year’s virtual awards. This year, The CCD beat off competition from other international venues including Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Centre, Excel London and the ICC Belfast.
Stephen Meehan, Chief Executive of The CCD, who also presented the award for Conference of the Year on the night, spoke about the achievement, “We are delighted to win ‘Best Venue’ again at this year’s C&IT Awards. This has been a challenging time for people, but we are now at a turning point where we are looking forward to welcoming people back to face-to-face events. These awards are so important to us as they recognise outstanding achievements across our industry and demonstrates our team’s hard work and passion for events.”
The CCD has hosted over 2,000 events and won 52 awards since opening.
