According to Tom Banville, Head of Enterprise at Local Enterprise Office Wexford,Bizfest aims to provide an opportunity for owners, managers and their key staff across Ireland to make connections while immersing themselves in the experience, entrepreneurial spirit and stories of entrepreneurs. We were delighted to welcome such a panel of unique business people who have experience on the local, national and international stage, and we hope that the attendees were inspired and enthused by what they saw and heard. We would like to thank our fellow sponsors Enterprise Ireland and Bank of Ireland, and everyone who exhibited and attended the event.”
