RDS Economic Vision 2020 Lecture Series | Turning Irish Design into Global Opportunity

6.00pm – 7.00pm

Royal Dublin Society (RDS)

The RDS is delighted to welcome Ms Karen Hennessy, Chief Executive, Design & Crafts Council of Ireland and Irish Design 2015, to present the next lecture in the RDS Economic Vision 2020 lecture series.


In particular, Ms Hennessy will discuss how Irish designers are turning their skills into global business opportunities. According to recently published research Irish design is worth over €37 billion to the economy, accounts for 20 per cent of all exports and employs over 48,000 people. In light of this realisation, the aim of this lecture is to outline the potential for further growth and development in the sector.
