Technical Facilities

State-of-the-art technical support for your event

When you enter The Convention Centre Dublin, you will quickly realise that you have come to one of the most technically advanced conference venues in the world.

Every hall, meeting room and boardroom is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment from some of the world’s leading technical manufacturers, all complemented by our dedicated in-house technical production team. From AV and sound technicians to lighting designers and riggers. Your Technical Production Manager will work with you to create a vision for your event, and ensure that you avail of the following equipment and support.

 

Lighting facilities at The CCD

We have an extremely versatile computerised lighting system to help you achieve this. We can programme lighting to sound tracks and create colour washes to reflect your brand. Moving gobos, follow spots and smoke machines can also be used to help bring your event to life.

 

 

Video Projections at The CCD

We carry a large selection of AV equipment from some of the top manufacturers in the business. Our largest projection screen is a massive 14m wide x 4.3m high and uses two Christie HD projectors, giving a whole new meaning to wide screen high definition! It is also possible to video-map the front of the building with graphics, images and videos.

 

Rigging and Staging at The CCD

 A wide range of integrated rigging and stages are also available for your event, along with settings such as lecterns, top tables and drapes. Our stunning Auditorium also has a Proscenium-style theatre stage with fly tower and safety curtain.

 

 

Sound Systems

From mixing consoles and amplifiers, to wireless microphones and loud speakers, we will help get your message across loud and clear. All of our rooms boast D&B sound systems, controlled by DigiCo digital consoles or Midas analogue desks. Wireless and wired microphones from Sennheiser and Shure are also available to complete your sound requirements.

Power Supply

From 13amp sockets for your laptop to a 3-phase 125a supply to power your lighting rig, we have plenty of power for your event. Heavy power requirements for large exhibitions are also easily arranged, and, via our network of under floor cable ducts, can be delivered at any point in the room to fit in with your exhibition floor plan.

Video, Data and Communications

Giving you a great degree of flexibility and control, we can play your company video or presentation whilst at the same time having speaker support via discreet autocues on stage. We also have video conferencing facilities (both over IP and ISDN) which can be incorporated into your event if required, and an extensive range of IT and telecommunications services.

ClearCom 4 Channel units (both wireless and hardwired) are available so the technicians running your event can keep in touch.

“Speaker Ready” Room

Your presentation can be uploaded onto our central server via our “Speaker-Ready” room which provides a technical network throughout the venue. This means the master copy of your presentation is ready to use in any of our meeting rooms within The CCD, so you do not need to carry a file around during your event.

Dedicated Vehicle Access

To help bring in all your production equipment, we have dedicated vehicle access for commercial vehicles, plus truck and van lifts to ensure easy access to the event spaces on higher levels. A forklift truck is also available for hire.
