Important National Conference Weekend Update

March 12, 2020

Given the prevailing circumstances in Ireland around COVID-19, it is with regret that we have decided to postpone/cancel some events around our National Conference weekend.

While we are still in in the containment phase in Ireland and the Government is not insisting on the cancellation of all events nationwide, we know that this situation is unprecedented and that the public health challenge and consequent risk is significant. We have taken this decision in the interest of the health and safety of everyone involved. 


Research Day: Friday 3 April 2020 – Croke Park – Postponed

We are now postponing our National Research conference until October 2020.  We will be back in touch with you in August with details of the rescheduled event.


National Annual Awards Evening – 3 April 2020 Clontarf Castle – Postponed

Similar to our Research Day, our National Annual Awards Evening will also be postponed until October 2020.  We will back in touch with you in August with details of the rescheduled event.


AGM: Saturday 4 April 2020 – Virtual Meeting

If you have booked a place to attend our AGM, we will communicate with you separately regarding this event. We are currently investigating online platforms to allow us to proceed with the AGM and we hope to have details confirmed soon.


National Annual conference and Expo: Saturday 4 April 2020 – Croke Park – Cancelled

We are cancelling our National Annual Conference 2020. Our next conference will now take place in April 2021.  Our National Annual Conference is not only a highlight of our calendar year, but an event highly enjoyed by our members, so we are very disappointed to have to cancel the event this year.


If you have booked for any of the above events you will automatically receive a full refund in the coming days and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.


If you have any queries, please contact our Membership team on 01 405 710.
