Adam to pack a punch at Enterprise Town event
FORMER Irish Boxing Olympian Adam Nolan will be one of the sporting personalities taking part in this year’s Enniscorthy Enterprise Town on September 29.
The Ballagh man, pictured, who is a guard based in Bray, Co Wicklow will be joined by an array of sporting, cultural and business personalities for the Bank of Ireland sponsored project which is taking place in the ballroom of the IFA Centre on Mill Park Road and at which more than 40 trade stands will be on display.
The Enniscorthy Enterprise Town event is open to any exhibitor who might wish to participate but as exhibition space is limited, exhibitors will only be accommodated on a first come, first served basis.
The initiative is designed to showcase the many and varied business enterprises which exist in Enniscorthy and to promote new opportunities for would be entrepreneurs. The event provides an ideal opportunity for start-up enterprises, in particular, to promote their business model and to introduce it to an audience which may not be aware of its existence.
In Enniscorthy only 30 per cent of local businesses have a shop front to help promote sales so the need for new initiatives and new ideas to create awareness of what is available in the town is of paramount importance. Bank of Ireland has identified this anomaly in the market place and is endeavouring to rectify the problem by promoting Enterprise town projects across the country. An initial Enniscorthy Enterprise Town project last year proved to be an outstanding success with many of the participants reporting increased sales in its immediate aftermath.
The format for this year’s event is similar to last year in that it will be a mix of business, sporting prowess, music and entertainment for all participants as well as for the general public who will attend. Karl Henry from ‘ Operation Transformation’ will give a motivational talk on health and well-being and there will also be a panel discussion involving local food producers which will be chaired by Karl Fitzpatrick of South East Radio’s ‘Business Matters’.
Registration for participation in this year’s Enniscorthy Enterprise Town project is now open and as entry and participation is free of charge. There is sure to be considerable interest from within the town’s business community. The event is open to any or all business interests, sporting organisations, cultural groups or new start-up entrepreneurs but with space limited to 40 or so stand-holders, the advice is to register early in order to avoid disappointment. This can be done by contacting any Bank of Ireland staff member in Enniscorthy or by contacting Branch Manager, Marguerite Murphy.
Admittance to the event is free of charge. Enniscorthy Enterprise Town will take place between 5.30 p.m. and 8.30 p.m. on Friday, September 29, in the IFA Centre on Mill Park Road. The event also has the full support of Enniscorthy Chamber of Commerce, Enniscorthy Business Association, the Lions Club and many voluntary organisations and sporting clubs.
