The International Sustainability Gathering was held in the Printworks, Dublin Castle. We were delighted once again to have Tom Williams as our director of events for this Summit. The pre-summit dinner held in Farmleigh House was an outstanding success and provided a great opener to the important business of the following day. From registration to the close of the summit every detail managed to provide us with another successful summit.
The International Sustainability Gathering
Platinum Events have managed the Global International Financial Services Summits for us at various venues in Dublin including the Hilton Double Tree, Four Seasons, Shelbourne Hotel, and Dublin Castle. Our events normally include plenary sessions, break out meetings, exhibition area, and lunches and on occasion gala dinners with entertainment for several hundred people. By negotiating with venues and suppliers on our behalf Tom has achieved significant savings on our events.
Global International Financial Services Summits
The International Sustainability Summit in the Volvo Ocean Race Global Village was managed by Tom Williams who provided clear guidance to various teams involved to provide a coordinated service. The Taoiseach, Ministers and all of the 300 delegates received the undivided attention of Tom and his team. He managed to secure the exclusive use of the marquee for the Summit lunch overlooking the bay (reserved only for the international race competitors) as the visiting yachts sailed into Galway Bay which was an outstanding highlight of the event and provided a memorable experience for all in attendance.

We have found that Tom’s previous experience in hospitality can also achieve significant savings while ensuring that all our delegates attending the conference hosted by Finance Dublin received a high level of service and attention to detail from those catering at our event. His understanding of behind the scenes operations have proved to be invaluable where timetables have required adjustments to cater for overruns in the conference schedule.
The Platinum Events staff were always available to the Department for the United Nations ICT Task Force round the clock and this allowed for those in different time zones to arrange their travel and attendance in a manner and timing that suited the attendees. The attendees also commented that they always received appropriate and timely responses, even when that was outside the normal working day in Ireland.

The Platinum team have always displayed an understanding the objectives & goals set by Fintel Publications and this has allowed us to arrive at the venue for the event confident in the knowledge that not only our requirements but those of our sponsors and exhibitors have been met.
We look forward to working with Platinum for our next International Finance Event conference.
