Huge in­ter­est in En­ter­prise Town

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS - By DEB­O­RAH COLE­MAN

THE Bank of Ire­land En­ter­prise Town is com­ing back to Ark­low and is set to be big­ger than ever as a new venue at Gle­nart Col­lege has been se­cured.

The event, which takes place on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 7, was launched at Ark­low Li­brary on Thurs­day where the new sup­ports be­ing ex­tended to all reg­is­tered ex­hibitors were out­lined.

Th­ese in­clude a pre-event busi­ness net­work­ing ses­sion.

‘Last year we found that En­ter­prise Town ex­hibitors made lots of lo­cal con­nec­tions with other com­pli­men­tary or­gan­i­sa­tions and many gained sig­nif­i­cant busi­ness, as a re­sult. This year, we want to help fos­ter the net­work­ing as­pect by bring­ing ex­hibitors to­gether in ad­vance of the event to fa­cil­i­tate and max­imise the po­ten­tial for co­op­er­a­tion amongst lo­cal busi­nesses,’ said Derek Tobin, Bank of Ire­land Ark­low branch man­ager.

De­mand to par­tic­i­pate in Ark­low En­ter­prise Town is high and, since the launch on Thurs­day, over 60 lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions have reg­is­tered to take part. The event is com­pletely free for both ex­hibitors and at­ten­dees. For at­ten­dees, there will be lots of en­ter­tain­ment for all ages, kids’ ac­tiv­i­ties, spot prizes and spe­cial guests. De­tails of the 2017 guest of hon­our are be­ing fi­nalised and will be an­nounced soon.

Busi­nesses, schools, clubs and soci- eties in­ter­ested in tak­ing part in the events can reg­is­ter by email­ing derek. tobin@boi.com or by call­ing into the Bank of Ire­land Ark­low to speak to any mem­ber of staff.
