Part of the National Conference Centre competition involves proposing an operator. I dont think any of the bidders find that a problem.
The Illinois association of Cardio Surgeons will only have their conference in Dublin if there is a city centre location so their partners can shop. The competition is for a national conference centre, let Mansfield have his amateur snooker tournaments and sausage making conventions, the ancillary and direct spend is at least 5 times lower.
Seriously though, Roche’s design: uni-faceted, unyielding, tombsone to modern architecture. Sort of reminds me of the last shot fired in the war of independence. Am open to contradiction though
