On Thursday the 30th May, we here at Fota Island Resort Hotel in Cork were delighted to host the Cork Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Conference.

Run in association with the British Irish Chamber, the event included guest speakers: Hugo MacNeill, Managing Director (Ireland) Goldman Sachs, Sharon Buckley, Group Commercial Director of Musgraves, Finbar Whyte, VP and Site Director of GlaxoSmithKline, Julia Lynes of EazyCity and Denis Kennelly of IBM Ireland.

Sharing their experience, insights and expertise of international trading with those that attended the annual conference that this year concentrated on all aspects of trade with the UK, delegates were introduced to a different format and had the opportunity to work together in small focus groups.

Our versatile conference venue in Cork was utilised by the conference delegates who during breaks and networking opportunities where able to watch and engage with Jonathan Healy’s Newstalk programme, which we broadcast live from the foyer of the hotel, and a formal Lunch with the British Ambassador, HE Dominick Chilcott followed and was served in our Fota Hotel Restaurant.

Offering luxury conference facilities in Cork, we here at the Fota Island Resort can cater for up to 350 people at our five star resort in Ireland.
