Cara initially joined The Gleneagle group in 1997, prior to this she worked in Dublin for the Jury’s Hotel Group.
At the Killarney Convention Centre Cara deals with all queries from DMC’s, PCO’S and large association, unions and corporate conference and event organisers. As a Killarney resident, with over 18 years’ experience of selling Killarney, Cara is ideally placed to advise on how the Killarney Convention Centre facilities, as well as Killarney as a destination can work best for each conference or event.
What Cara enjoys most about her job is how every day and every event are different. She enjoys building lasting relationships with clients, delivering on promises, exceeding clients’ expectations and winning repeat business from satisfied customers. Cara also enjoys the challenge of pitching Killarney to new clients that are considering other national and international destinations. Once Killarney Convention Centre enters the bidding race she describes the thrill of moving up the ranks from outsider to making the short list as something she never tires of. Cara is passionate about how once a potential client comes on a site inspection they will fall in love with the people and destination of Killarney and find the enthusiasm and can do attitude of the on-site event teams as hard to beat.
