[audio] Gathering Chairman tells Cork business leaders event is going well

The Chairman of “The Gathering 2013” has told Cork business leaders that the project is meeting expectations.

Gathering Chairman Tim O’Connor was in the City last night to update more than 40 companies, mostly multinationals, about the year long calendar of events.

The goal of the Gathering is to attract tourists and the diaspora to visit Ireland

and Cork is hosting almost 300 events, meaning it’s second only to Dublin.

Cork’s flagship event will be a “Rebel Week” festival in October which will include a “Cork Day” and a “Cork Passport”.

The Gathering Chairman was invited to speak by the Cork Convention Bureau.
The Bureau is a public-private partnership established by Cork Chamber,

The City Council and County Council’s, The Irish Hotels Federation, Failte Ireland and Cork Airport.
New figures show that international conferences in Cork last year brought 7.2 million euro into the region.

President of Cork Chamber John Mullins says the goals of the Cork Convention Bureau and the Gathering are similar.
