Access & Transportation

    • By Air

    Dublin is highly accessible for delegates travelling from the UK, Europe, the US, and beyond. Dublin Airport is just 15 minutes from The Convention Centre Dublin via the Port Tunnel and serves over 180 routes – including direct flights to all major UK and European cities and daily flights to the Emirates and several North American cities.

    • By Sea

    Frequent ferry services to the UK and mainland Europe for both passengers and freight are within easy reach of The Convention Centre Dublin. Dublin Port is just minutes away, while Rosslare Harbour, with regular ferry services to Wales, France and Spain, is located just 2 hour’s drive from The CCD.

    • By Car or Taxi

    The Convention Centre Dublin is just minutes away from Ireland’s M50 motorway network and Dublin’s Port Tunnel. It is also next to the Samuel Beckett Bridge which spans the River Liffey, aiding access between the North and South of the city.

    The CCD has its own underground car park, with over 2,000 spaces located in car parks nearby, as well as considerable on street ‘pay and display’ parking on North Wall Quay and adjoining roads.

CGF Events App

The CGF Events app is our exclusive tool for you to network with fellow delegates and access event information before and during the Summit. Access to the event will be available before the Summit starts.

Executive Summary

An Executive Summary of the Global Summit’s sessions will be sent by email to delegates after the Summit and will also be made available on the CGF website.

Session Presentations

Speakers’ presentations will be available after you finish completing our evaluation questionnaire. Availability of presentations is entirely at the discretion of the speakers.

Evaluation Questionnaire

It is very important for us to get your feedback to better understand your needs. We will ask you to rate the Global Summit speakers after each day via an online questionnaire. After the event, we will ask you for five minutes of your time to fill in a more general online evaluation questionnaire so that we can better serve your needs in the future.
