CBMI 2019 will host two main social events. The welcome reception on 4th September 2019 and the conference banquet on 5th September 2019.
The CBMI 2019 banquet will take place at Clontarf Castle, which is close to the conference venue on the north side of Dublin City. Clontarf Castle was built on the site of the famous Battle of Clontarf in 1014, which saw Irish and Norse kings and warlords doing battle on a day that resulted in the loss of up to 10,000 lives. The battle was an important event in Irish history and is recorded in both Irish and Norse chronicles. In Ireland, the battle came to be seen as an event that freed the Irish from foreign domination. Clontarf castle has existed since 1172 and the current building dates to 1837. Handel was a frequent visitor to the then castle during his stay in Dublin for the premiere of Messiah in 1742. More recently the castle is referred to by Phil Lynott of the Irish rock group Thin Lizzy in his song "The Friendly Ranger at Clontarf Castle", the opening track on their 1971 debut album Thin Lizzy. In 2014 Clontarf Castle Hotel was awarded the 2014 Best Hotel Event Venue award at the 2014 Event Industry Awards.
