    Export Summit 2017

    EXPORT SUMMIT 2017- Local to Global CLAYTON HOTEL GALWAY (9am-4pm) 9TH OF November 2017 ‘Export Summit 2017- Local to Global’ was launched in County Buildings, Galway, this week as an initiative that aims to support companies that wish to either kick start or expand their export efforts. The event is a collaborative undertaking by the Local Enterprise Offices of the West of Ireland, Enterprise Ireland, Údarás na Gaeltachta, Western Development Commission and the IDA. Speaking at the event’s launch, Barry Egan of Enterprise Ireland had this to say: ““Enterprise Ireland’s strategy aims to support more Irish companies with global ambition to achieve greater scale and expand their global footprint. Our strategy aims to increase client company exports to €26 billion per annum by the end of 2020 with an ambitious target to grow the level of exports to over two thirds outside the UK over the period. The ‘Export Summit – Local to Global ’ will provide companies from across the West of Ireland with a valuable opportunity to examine the potential of a range of new markets and new strategies for growing their business. This is an important event in the Region’s business calendar.” Export Summit 2017 will incorporate a panel discussion by local companies who have successfully grown their businesses from a local to a global market. Enterprise Ireland are providing overseas country managers to outline opportunities in key markets including the UK, Northern Europe and Germany. The afternoon includes a series of interactive workshops and presentations by keynote speakers and experts in specific markets. Supported by financial, communication and talent management professionals the event allows delegates to share best practice on growing and developing a successful export business. Keynote speakers with a proven track-record in high level international trading (such as Damien Costello of Synecco, James Murphy of Lifes2Good and Colm Feeney of SSL Logistics) will deliver instructive advice on how to access new markets in Europe and beyond. Export Summit also affords attendees the opportunity to network with other exporting companies, and to access Government agencies such as Enterprise Ireland, the IDA and Local Enterprise Offices – all under one roof. Breda Fox, Head of Enterprise, Local Enterprise Office Galway outlined the importance of this event for any West of Ireland business considering immediate or eventual growth into overseas markets. "This event is a wonderful opportunity for small and established businesses to meet experts and businesses that are successful in overseas markets. It will help those attending on the day to gather the knowledge and information about the supports available to help them expand into ever-expanding and increasingly competitive overseas markets” The event is open to all companies, either currently exporting or intend to export.
