Why should you attend?
Irish consumers online spend is expected to grow by 16% per year between now and 2016, but action is needed if Irish businesses are to benefit.  New media, digital developments and the Internet provides significant opportunities for Irish companies to get ahead of their competitors.  Wexford Chamber is providing businesses with the support and expertise they need to engage in online trading.

Irish consumers currently spend about €3.7 billion per year online and it is expected to grow to €5.7 billion by 2016. However, only a quarter of current online sales goes to Irish businesses, and only 23% of Irish SMEs are trading online.  International research shows that SMEs who adopt online trading grow twice as fast and export twice as much as their offline competitors.

Light refreshments will be served on arrival.  Sufficient time will be allocated for questions and answers at the end of the event.
