Come to the Carnevale

There’s going to be a Carnevale atmosphere next month when a black tie ball gets underway.

It’s the pre-Christmas black tie tourism dinner being organised by member of the Cork Branch of the IHF. They recently gathered to celebrate the launch of their dinner which this year takes place at the Radisson Blu Hotel and Spa in Little Island on Thursday 17 November.

Speaking at the launch of the event, Chairman of the Cork Branch of the IHF Joe Kennedy said: “We are delighted to be back in a position of being able to hold our Cork tourism dinner which enables us to recognise members and employees across the hotel and guesthouse sector in Cork, many of whom have had trying times over the past number of years. However, we’re sure that all attendees will have a fun filled evening in true Cork carnivale style, and we are very grateful to suppliers and sponsors for their support of the event.”

This year’s dinner is the first such dinner in 3 years and recognises the efforts of the hotel and guesthouse community in the Cork region, offering members the opportunity to reconnect and celebrate with peers & suppliers across the sector.

In addition to supporting charitable causes and recognising efforts of those in the sector, the event is invaluable to fundraising activities for the branch, where all funds raised are automatically put back into the development, promotion and support for the Cork hotel and guesthouse industry and employees of member properties.
