A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to attend our conference on the 20th of November 2015, it was a great success and a wonderful opportunity for members to meet each other and our business partners.


Once the AGM was completed, the attendee enjoyed very professional and relevant presentations from our key speakers from Failte Ireland, SuperControl, BeSmart.ie and Helen Cousins, Financial Advisor and ISCF Member. Helen Cousin’s presentation slides on costing short breaks are available by request. Helen has had also done a blog post about the same topic, but for those who are already selling online.

Our conference this year was sponsored by: FBD, Yapstone, SuperControl and Relate Software, we thank them for their continued support. We would also like to thank the Trade Suppliers who attended; Premier Utilities, TUI, My Home From the Sky and JSK Cleaning who could not attend.

We thank those who completed the AGM & Conference Feedback back and we were pleased to view such positive feedback. Congratulations to Stephen McGovern and Michelle Devaney on winning the spot prizes for completing the Feedback form. The main area which we would like to improve on next year is the attendance. To that end, we are discussing possible venues which are more central to our members such as Athlone. We welcome your ideas on the matter as the function is run purely for the members to give you the opportunity to share ideas and network with other self-caterers and ISCF trade Suppliers.
