Hosting face-to-face events

Our doors are open, ready and waiting to welcome you back to face-to-face events at The CCD. Safety is our key priority when it comes to hosting events. We want everyone that comes to The Convention Centre Dublin to feel comfortable and safe. 

From the moment you step foot inside our expansive atrium, you'll be greeted by a sense of immense space. All three levels of our auditorium and all halls open out to one of five spacious foyer areas. The air handling units operate on full fresh air. This means there is no recirculated air used and supply air never mixes with return air which gets discharged to the atmosphere.

Here are just some of the additional measures we've taken to ensure paramount levels of safety on-site.


Sanitisation 1


We have hand sanitisation stations at all entry points to the building, and have enhanced the frequency of cleaning rooms, equipment and touchpoints before, during and after each event. Toilets and handwashing facilities are available on each level, with additional space between stalls, urinals and sinks.



Socially distanced auditorium seating at The CCD

Seating and Layouts

Seating options and capacities for conferences, meetings and banquets have all been adapted to adhere to current social distancing guidelines. In the auditorium, some rows and seats are cordoned off to ensure additional space remains between delegates. Entry and exit flows in and out of all halls will be designated in advance, using signage, floor markings and our CCD Hosts, where required. 



Signage 1


There are floor markings throughout the Ground Floor Foyer, at escalators, in lifts and at queuing points to indicate social distancing. Our digital signage units throughout the building will display health and safety notices to encourage good hygiene practices, in line with local health authority guidelines. 


Hospitality 1


Coffee, buffet and service stations have been increased, and we can facilitate staggered break and mealtimes to minimise queuing and gatherings of people. As per current Failte Ireland Guidelines our Hospitality teams wear face masks. All our meals are individually packaged and cutlery sets are single use and compostable.
