DublinTown’s members benefit from a range of services across the three core areas of focus as agreed in our mandate. The primary objective is to increase the number of customers coming into the city. We aim to achieve this by (1) creating a welcoming city (2) ensuring a sense of security in our city and (3) implementing a marketing campaign that promotes the city centre as the destination of choice for work, shopping and leisure.
We provide supplementary street cleaning throughout the DublinTown area, including a rapid response service and we remove between 18,000m2 – 20,000m2 of graffiti from our members’ buildings each year. We also provide Christmas lights throughout the city, flower planters and hanging baskets on streets in our area.
Our members benefit from being part of a wider collective economic voice of 2,500 businesses when DublinTown represents their interests on issues facing the city centre. Through active lobbying and petitioning we ensure our members’ voices are heard. This collective economic muscle also allows us negotiate preferential rates on products and services for our members.
DublinTown also provide Christmas Lights to almost thirty streets around the city centre.
The marketing programme we implement on behalf of our members serves to promote the city centre and develop increased custom for the businesses in our area. Throughout the year our events calendar promotes Dublin city centre as the retail, business and leisure location of choice. Major events organised by DublinTown include: Dine in Dublin, Dublin Fashion Festival and Dublin at Christmas
