DUBLIN – 16 March, 2015 – The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD) has reconfirmed events for 2016 and 2017 with two key clients, Airfinance Events and the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.

Airfinance Events held its 17th Annual Global Airfinance Conference at The CCD in January this year and subsequently confirmed the event for the next two years. “We are delighted to return to The CCD in 2016 and 2017,” said Candice Chevillard, Head of Airfinance Events. “Space, flexibility, comfort and convenience are important when choosing the right venue for a large scale event such as the Annual Global Airfinance Conference and The CCD has it all.”

The Annual Global Airfinance Conference is the premium event for the aviation finance industry and involves three days of networking with around 300 senior airline executives representing over 120 carriers.
