International Engineering Meet the Buyer Event to take place in Monaghan

A major international trade event is taking place in Monaghan.

The EENGINEX Engineering Meet the Buyer and Networking Event takes place at the new CombiLift factory complex in Monaghan on 21st November, and offers engineering firms the opportunity to engage in pre-arranged, face-to-face sales meetings with key buyers and other suppliers from throughout Ireland – north and south.

The event is being organised by Enterprise Europe Network through the Local Enterprise Offices in Ireland and in conjunction with Enterprise Ireland at regional level; it is expected that over 100 engineering firms will attend, from a cross section of sectors including construction, environmental, materials handling, marine and aerospace.


Speaking about the event, EEN co-ordinator Eileen Kelly said:  “EENGINEX is a great opportunity for engineering suppliers to introduce themselves to new buyers and learn about new projects. At the same time, it enables buyers to increase their supply chain and up their brand profile to potential new clients.”


“The key focus of the event will be the scheduling of over 500 pre-arranged meetings between buyers and suppliers.  This proven approach allows our smaller companies, many of which will be meeting corporate buyers for the first time, the opportunity to go face to face and very quickly get down to the business of doing business.”


The event is being hosted by Combilift with a special buyers’ event on the evening of Tuesday 20th November including a factory tour and pre-event dinner.  In addition to the business meetings on Wednesday, there will be a series of workshops on issues such as Brexit and LEAN manufacturing, as well as factory tours of the Combilift Plant.


Registration for the event is free of charge. For further information on those firms attending, or to book a place at EENGINEX, visit If you have any queries please contact or Local Enterprise Office Donegal at
