Huge interest in Enterprise Town
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 societies interested in taking part in the events can register by emailing derek. firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling into the Bank of Ireland Arklow to speak to any member of staff.
For more details over the coming weeks, follow the ‘Arklow Enterprise Town’ Facebook page. The Business Networking event, for registered exhibitors, will take place on Tuesday, September 26, from 6-7 p.m. at Bank of Ireland, Arklow.
