You may have seen commentary in the media about the potential for the Government to take over the Citywest Hotel & Convention Centre in the coming weeks to accommodate families arriving from Ukraine who have been displaced due to the ongoing war.
This afternoon, our CEO Páiric Clerkin was verbally informed by the General Manager of Citywest Hotel that the venue is likely to be unavailable for our conference on 19th and 20th May. We are awaiting formal confirmation from the hotel and will communicate with you as soon as we have received same.
The IPPN Board of Directors and staff are actively working on contingency plans. We are fully committed to holding the conference this year and are looking at an alternative venue, which would mean the event will take place later in 2022.
Please bear with us until the middle of next week when we hope to be in a position to provide more definitive information.
