Save the date for our 3rd European Conference

Don’t forget that we will be hosting out 3rd European Conference between the 26th and 28th September at the River Lee hotel in Cork, Ireland. The event will showcase talks around technological advances in the industry and feature presentations by leading speakers, so it’s not to be missed.

Cork City is Ireland’s Second largest city, with Dublin the capital being the largest. Cork is famous for many things, including being home to the first factory that Ford Motor Company built outside of America, which is where Henry Ford’s ancestors came from. Another famous landmark is Blarney Castle. Popular myth denotes that kissing the Blarney Stone at the top of the Castle will bestow the kisser with the “gift of gab” (great eloquence, or skills of flattery).

Cork has always been an important seaport. It began on an island in the swampy estuary of the River Lee (the name Corcaigh means a marsh), and gradually climbed up the steep banks on either side.

If you would like to come along to attend the conference along with taking in an experience visiting the historic city of Cork, please get in touch with the UOC team.
