‘Local Enterprise Village’ NPA 2017

The National Ploughing Championships is being held in Screggan, Tullamore, Co. Offaly from 19th – 21st September, 2017 where over 250,000 consumers will visit a 50 acre exhibition and trade arena. This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the quality and high standards of goods and services supported by the Local Enterprise Office (LEO).

As part of its National Programme the Local Enterprise Offices are hosting a Local Enterprise Village to provide an opportunity for clients to take full advantage of this unique consumer event. Each Local Enterprise Office has 1 stand available for its clients.

The Local Enterprise Office Kilkenny is now inviting any clients interested in availing of this stand to complete the attached ‘expression of interest’ form and return to our office by 1st May 2017. Please note that priority will be given to enterprises manufacturing their own product or offering an innovative service relevant to the audience expected at the show. Once your expression of interest form has been received it will be considered centrally and successful applicants will be advised by email Mid-May, 2017.

Chosen exhibitors will be expected to attend a client briefing and photography session at one of the following locations:

Dublin – Crown Plaza, Santry                                                          28th June, 2017

Tullamore – Tullamore Distillery, Clonminch, Tullamore                  5th July, 2017

Exhibitors will be advised at confirmation of booking stage. The session will commence at 10.30am. Attendance at one of these sessions is compulsory as part of your booking. These sessions provide you with the opportunity to:

(1) Obtain guidance on the NPA Exhibition,

(2) Obtain high quality photography which is used for signage, publicity and PR and

(3) Meeting with the exhibition contractor to discuss further requirements.

 Please note that set up will be scheduled for 17th and 18th September and all companies must be available for setup at given time.

 As part of this ‘Local Enterprise Village’ each company will receive:

  • Exhibition Space 3 x 2 meters
  • 2 x Exhibitors Passes
  • 1 x space in exhibitor car parking area (general parking is free at the event)
  • Electricity Supply
  • Access to PR Opportunities
  • Exhibition Advice

The cost of stands is highly subsidised and costs €500 for a 3 x 2 meter stand. Please note that this is first and foremost an opportunity to showcase your products and build contacts with a view to future sales as opposed to being an event to be measured by sales made over the 3 days.   Food companies can serve samples only or sell products for home use.
