The Convention Centre Dublin enjoyed record revenues of €28.63m last year before being hit by the economic impact of Covid-19 in 2020, new accounts show.
The €28.6m in revenues represents an 11pc increase on the €25.8m recorded in 2018 and the highest annual revenues since the CCD opened in 2010.
However, due to Covid-19, all major events at the CCD since March of this year have been cancelled or postponed, though the business has remained active with the Oireachtas staging Dáil and Seanad sittings at the venue.
Last year, pre-tax profits at the company which operates the CCD, the Spencer Dock Convention Centre Dublin DAC declined by 86pc to €2.29m.
This was due mainly to a once-off €12m refinancing charge on the debt attached to the company.
