More than a stadium, Croke Park is Ireland’s greatest amphitheatre. This truly is the beating heart of Irish sport and culture. It’s this living legacy that makes Croke Park one of the world’s most unique and versatile venues to bring people together to inspire and entertain.

The stadium is one of the largest in Europe, with a capacity of 82,300 and can accommodate all types of events – from field sports to concerts, meetings to tradeshows and bespoke banqueting. Croke Park has UEFA and FIFA approved certification and has hosted numerous high-profile international sporting, cultural and music events outside of Gaelic games. Ideally located just 15 minutes from the airport and 5 minutes from the city centre Croke Park is the perfect host venue for TheStadiumBusiness Summit 2017.

I had a great time and more importantly I learned a great deal. The networking alone was worth the trip but when you add the ability to come back and improve your business…well then you have a real winner
