A major new event for Ireland’s SME’s, YOUR BUSINESS LIVE, has launched today. The two-day SME event will gather together executives, decision-makers, entrepreneurs, owners and managers from around the country to network, learn and do business.
Vodafone Ireland will be title sponsor for the event which takes place on October 17th and 18th 2017 in the RDS Simmonscourt, Dublin.
The event is supported by Ibec for Irish Business, Small Firms Association (SFA) and Enterprise Ireland, reinforcing the aim of this event to create a new marketplace for the broad range of Irish SME’s – from start-up and micro, to small and medium businesses, as well as export led across industry sectors. SME’s account for 99.8% of all active businesses in Ireland.
YOUR BUSINESS LIVE 2017 will facilitate interaction and collaboration among business decision makers, start-ups, owners and managers, providing the opportunity for Irish SME’s to showcase innovative new products and services, in addition to gaining industry knowledge and insights.
Networking events, workshops and high-level speaker seminars will be taking place at the event.
Ireland’s top entrepreneurs are endorsing YOUR BUSINESS LIVE including David Bobbett (H&K International), Brody Sweeney (Camile Thai), Ray Coyle (Largo Foods), Vincent Cleary (Glenisk), Eamon Moore (EMIT) and Greg Clarke (Digicom). Entrepreneur Sean Gallagher is Event Director.
Commenting on the initiative, Entrepreneur and Event Director, Sean Gallagher said, "I have long been a champion of the SME sector. This is because of the great courage and bravery they have in setting up businesses and creating jobs, often in places where larger multinationals never can. In many ways these small and medium sized businesses are the glue that holds our communities together."
He added, "This will be an exciting exhibition supported by an extensive programme of seminars and workshops given by some of Ireland’s most inspiring business leaders. An ideal place to learn, network and be inspired, YOUR BUSINESS LIVE will be Ireland’s biggest and most important event of the year for the SME Sector.”
