Engage!22 The Ireland Experience

Engage! is headed back to Ireland, this time just outside of Dublin, October 17-20, 2022.  Join us as many of the leaders in the global wedding industry gathers for three days of inspiration, education, and celebration in the heart of County Kildare, Ireland. Engage! will take place at the 5-star K Club, Carton House, and Luttrellstown Castle and welcome a diverse collection of globally focused speakers, a mix of past favorites, and new faces to the Engage! stage. In partnership with Tara Fay Events and with support from Failte Ireland, we will also experience some other landmark locations to be announced soon and spend time in the charming Village of Kildare!

Engage! is designed for committed wedding industry professionals looking for innovative ideas and practical solutions for strategic growth. Engage! is dedicated to gathering the best of the best, and is limited to 275 speakers and attendees. Careful attention is paid to creating an intimate atmosphere that blends structure and downtime, allowing for candid networking in a non-client, non-competitive environment. The open exchange of ideas, information, and strategies for facing the challenges of the luxury wedding industry are hallmarks of the event — often imitated, never repeated.

County of Kildare, Ireland

  • The K Club Hotel
  • Carton House
  • Luttrellstown Castle Resort

The luxury K Club Hotel in Kildare is looking forward to welcoming you to their 5 star resort: for an experience of relaxing, reconnecting, laughter, clinking of glasses, music and glorious food. The 5 Star K Club is one of Ireland’s top golf and spa resorts, tucked away in the Kildare countryside yet just on Dublin’s doorstep, firmly anchored in old-school Irish hospitality in a delightfully relaxed way. Set in lush countryside while overlooking formal gardens and two Arnold Palmer golf courses, The K Club golf resort is known for offering the best golfing experiences in Ireland. Staying indoors also offers endless luxury as you can relax and unwind with a spa day at K Spa while our hotel also has a wide choice of bars, restaurants,handsome drawing rooms and magnificent interiors. During your visit get out in the fresh country air on horseback or follow one of the mapped garden walks exploring the grounds at your own leisurely pace. You can also opt to take resort bicycles to the cosy Straffan Inn pub in the nearby village.

Carton House, a Fairmont Managed Hotel is luxury hotel escapism at its best. Set on 1,100 private acres of sweeping Kildare parkland, just twenty minutes from Dublin International Airport, it is one of Ireland’s most exquisite national treasures. When you arrive at Carton House, you enter a place rich with over three centuries of history. Originally the home of the influential and aristocratic FitzGerald family, its history is as dramatic and storied as that of our nation itself; rich in art, culture, romance and politics, echoes of which can be felt as you walk the halls today.

Luttrellstown Castle Resort: Where luxury reigns.

Only a short distance from the centre of one of the most popular and vibrant cities in the world, lies an estate that’s worlds away from any hustle and bustle. Situated on 567 acres of lush private parkland, lies a championship golf course that serves as the perfect getaway for a few hours of scenic escapism. The jewel in the crown of this peaceful, picturesque sanctuary, is a magnificent, world-famous 15th century castle, offered for hire on an exclusive basis. Luttrellstown Castle Resort is an elegant, discreet and luxurious backdrop for any occasion. But more than anything, even after 600 years, it remains true to what it was when it was first built – an opulent venue for gracious hospitality and entertainment, tailored to each visitor’s exacting requirements.

 

Speakers

Engage! is renowned for its exciting array of world-class speakers, which include the leading lights of the global wedding industry, top editors, thought leaders in all aspects of luxury lifestyle, and creative entrepreneurs doing unique things across the events industry. Speakers are being curated and will be announced by mid 2022.

If you’re interested in being considered for speaking, please click here to fill out our speaker submission form. We do ask that the topic(s) submitted are of original content, and not delivered to an audience prior to Engage!22 The Ireland Experience.

We are honored to receive an incredible amount of speaker submissions each year and with a prodigious roster of past Engage! speakers to select from, we have limited opportunity to open the platform to a few new speakers for each event. Please note that we give priority to those who have attended at least one or more Engage! event as we have found it is critical to understand the unique makeup of our esteemed audience and allows speakers to truly share impactful content that is most relevant.

If you are interested in attending the event, we encourage you to register as we anticipate selling out before we finalize speakers. This will have no bearing on the selection process.
