State-of-the-art online solutions for all meeting types in brand-new Conference Centre


With the conference and meeting sector being hit badly during the Pandemic, businesses are looking at new ways to host these events over the next number of months.

Kilkea Castle in Co. Kildare has just announced a partnership with Mavrix, the independent, experiential agency, to introduce virtual conferencing in its brand-new Conference Centre.

Suitable for conferences and meetings of all sizes, these online virtual events are a turnkey communication and engagement solution from Mavrix, with interactive applications in a virtual environment that transform regular meetings into unforgettable experiences. They can cater for all meeting types such as town halls, conferences, staff training, employee engagement and company updates, with a range of solutions available to suit all budgets and Covid-19 restrictions. Meeting attendees can join the events from the comfort of their own homes or offices.

The on-site technical team will be placed at a safe distance from meeting hosts and there will be a limited production crew. Set-up will have been completed in advance, and hosts need just arrive for rehearsals before the conference, minimising time on-site and social interaction.

Kilkea Castle and Mavrix are offering two online event experience options for its clients.

1. The single space experience delivers a series of live simulive, or on-demand presentations organised by categories. Live presentations can be presented in a number of different formats. Notes synced to video are available for download after the session. This option works best for town halls and company updates or announcements.

2. The immersive experience package has multiple event spaces for the attendee to explore. It emulates a physical conference with event spaces, sponsorship opportunities, programmed sessions and engagement tools, and private networking areas. This option is perfect for company conferences or a sales kick off.


Key features of the Kilkea Castle studio include a 16ft x 10ft built-in screen, Panasonic 7000 Lumen Laser Vision Projector, the ability to transform the background into different virtual environments at the click of a switch, and the ability to host multiple participants on-stage remotely.

Kilkea Castle, just an hour’s drive from Dublin, opened its brand-new state-of-the-art conference centre last year, complete with its own car park and private entrance. The centre is suitable for both large conferences and smaller, more intimate meetings, with a dedicated pre-conference area, and a number of breakout and syndicate rooms, all flooded with natural daylight and views of the rolling 180-acre estate.

Adrian Mooney, Director of Sales with Kilkea Castle says: ‘For us this partnership yet again signifies that Kilkea Castle is at the forefront when it comes to catering for our corporate clients. It is important for us to adapt to the ever-changing needs of our clients and our partnership with Mavrix signifies this. “

Marc Corrigan, founder and creative director with Mavrix says: “We are delighted to partner with Kilkea Castle on providing a world-class facility for Virtual Conferencing at Kilkea Castle. Coupling Mavrix’s extensive experience at hosting global virtual conferences with Kilkea Castle’s top-class service and facilities, this partnership really is something special that we are sure will meet and exceed expectations.”
