Master Painters & Decorators of Ireland National Convention 2016

Kingsley Hotel, Cork

MPDI National Convention 2016

Mark Dilloughrey

This year’s event takes us to the Kingsley Hotel in my native Cork. 
The Hotel is ideally positioned at the heart of the city with the famous River Lee on one side, the location is perfect for those wishing to enjoy a city break combined with this important National Industry event.
Delegates are free to avail of the special accommodation rate (€116 B&B for 2 sharing) and should use the reference MPDI when booking. The hotel also boasts a state of the art luxury spa for anyone wishing to indulge themselves.  
We have reserved a number of tee times at Fota Island Resort Golf Club (Belvelly Course) which can be reserved by simply confirming this with your booking form.
For those wishing to make a weekend of the occasion, the event will begin on Friday evening with an informal get together in the Kingsleys Fishers bar at 8:00pm with light refreshments served. On Saturday, following the Presidents Reception at 7.00pm, the Gala Black Tie Dinner will be held in the Hotel’s Dean Woodward Suite bringing a conclusion to the weekend.
The Gala Dinner promises to be a highly entertaining evening with UK based International entertainers Daniel Morgan Hayes & Tony Benedict bringing their unique entertainment act to Cork for the first time. The duo have provided the entertainment at the annual Painting & Decorating Association UK event for many years and are truly an entertainment act not to be missed. 
We hope you will join us for what promises to be an exceptional and memorable weekend in Cork.
We very much look forward to seeing you there
