Be Part of Showcase Ireland 2017

Showcase Carousel 2

Showcase – Ireland’s International Creative Expo – takes places from 22nd to 27th January 2017 in the RDS, Dublin.  It is one of the country’s largest international trade shows, attended annually by over 5,000 buyers from Ireland and up to 26 countries around the world, generating sales orders of up to €20million over the four days of the show.  Showcase is a partnership between the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland and Showcase Ireland Events Ltd., with support from Enterprise Ireland in promoting the show internationally through their network of offices overseas.
As part of its continued support to the gift/craft/design/homewares sector, the LEOs of Cork City, South Cork, North and West Cork are offering exhibition space in the Local Enterprise Showcase area at a subsidised rate to suitable clients. The exhibition space offered consists of an enhanced 2 meter by 2 meter stand under the LEOs’ Local Enterprise Showcase banner. Interested exhibitors will complete and submit an application form and following a selection process by the LEOs, the final exhibitors will be confirmed.  The stands will be situated in the Local Enterprise Showcase zone which is located in the balcony area of the Main Hall, RDS, Dublin.  
The objective of the Local Enterprise Showcase is to create a platform for retail sales for Cork craft/gift/design producers, promoting the work as quality, consumer-led craft that has a strong emphasis on retail sales.  In order to support business development and growth within the sector, priority in selection will be given to micro enterprises who have not previously exhibited at Showcase.
