Keeping Cork growing

Wednesday, 9th October, 2019 4:41pm

Step right up for the first ever Cork Business Expo & Summit which touches down on Leeside this month.

The one day event will give local and national businesses and organisations the opportunity to meet, connect and share with new customers and clients in Cork.

A host of businesses are set to attend the expo ranging from recruitment to financial services and beyond, each with their own stand through which they will engage with the public.

The event, which is hosted by Business Cork and Diplomat, will also feature a number of global embassies who will be on hand to speak with the people of Cork about business, tourism and educational opportunities available in their own countries.

Argentina, Lithuania, Malta, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey are just a few of the embassies that will be there on the day.

A number of local charity groups will also have a presence at the event, taking this special opportunity to share their important messages with the public and with the Irish business community. Charities attending will include the Greater Chernobyl Cause, Down Syndrome Cork, Breakthrough Cancer Research, and Marymount University Hospital & Hospice.

Between 10.30am and 6pm, a troop of more than 30 speakers from participating exhibitors will take to the podium to address the audience and introduce their business or organisation.

Some of the participating exhibitors include: AIB; Grenke Bank; Recruiters.ie; Paul O' Donovan & Associates; Travel Counsellors; Smart Office; Oriel House Hotel; Alpha Wealth; Safekeeping; Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa; Right Solutions Centre; Midleton Park Hotel; MSL Cork; AG Associates; Confidential Shredding; Midlands Hotel; Presentation Binding; Conversation Piece and Trident Hotel.

Speaking to the Cork Independent, Michael Mulcahy of Business Cork, who is organising the event, said: “The expo is all about promoting Cork business.

“The exhibitors that will be present are all interested in showcasing their products and services to a wider audience.

“People coming to this expo will be able to pick up a lot of information about doing business with different types of companies.

“The tagline for this expo is ‘Keep Cork Growing’, and while that's about keeping it growing from a business point of view, it's also about keeping it growing from the point of view that anybody who is a citizen of Cork needs to be included in what we are all doing from a business point of view.

“These expos are about giving people the means to look for a better opportunity for what they might want in life, and if what we're doing with this expo can help in that way then I think we will have done our job a little bit better.”

The first ever Cork Business Expo & Summit 2019 will take place this Thursday 17 October from 9am-9pm in the Clayton Hotel Conference Centre, Silver Springs, and is free to attend.

A number of exhibition spaces are still available at the expo and any interested parties can contact Laura Warren at 083-8819377.
