EWC Conference in Irland

Dublin, 29 - 31 March 2023

So far, the EWC Academy has held six symposia in London. With Brexit we are moving these to Dublin, as many UK and US companies have done with their EWCs. Irish law does not meet all the standards of the EU Directive (see: https://www.ewc-news.com/en022022.htm#2). Simultaneous interpretation will be provided for the meeting. The evening programme includes a visit to the Guinness Storehouse, the historic brewery with a panoramic view of the city.
