Tell us about CongRegation

This is the 6th year of CongRegation. The theme this year is Ideas and entry is free for the three days, we have an evening in Ashford Castle, Full Day unconference in Cong Village, workshops, family event and social events.

The event works very differently to the norm:

  • The entry mechanism: people need to blog their way in with a 600+ article on the theme.
  • Location: multiple venues in Ashford Castle and Cong village.
  • Mechanism of the event: we split people in to small huddles with everyone presenting
  • Opportunities to connect through peer to peer breaks
  • An evening of ‘learn to play a new musical instrument’ session, art workshops and Sunday social activity.
  • We are also a family friendly event with children's smart fabric all day workshops.
  • Output from our event: we publish a post event eBook and digital footprint of the submissions.

What do you expect attendees to get out of the event?

New contacts, new knowledge, inspiration and serendipitous encounters. In the words of one attendee “This is spa treatment for the mind”.
