2016 Wexford Business Expo – Growing your Business Online



The 2016 Wexford Business Expo promises to be the event of the year for businesses right across the South East.

Presented by Wexford Chamber and Wexford County Council,  this year’s event will be centred around the theme of ‘Maximising Your Online Sales’ providing attendees with access to information that will enable their business to achieve their online potential.

Speaking about the upcoming event CEO of Wexford Chamber, Madeleine Quirke said “Wexford Chamber is delighted to welcome Zurich as the new sponsor of the Wexford Business Expo and The Sunday Business Post as the official media partner. Both brands are market leaders in their respective sectors and are ambassadors for bringing local businesses online.  ESET Ireland and RIKON are also valuable sponsors of the Expo and the continued support that we  receive from Wexford County Council ensures that we deliver a first class event.”

Tom Enright, Chief Executive, Wexford County Council, said “The Expo will provide business people from all backgrounds with new and inventive ways to help to grow their businesses.   Expo 2016 supports the ambitious plans we have to develop the local economy in county Wexford and our staff will be on hand to provide business advice and supports.”

The event will feature keynote speakers who have achieved business success both on a national and an international scale and will provide the 100 exhibitors and 2,000 visitors on the day with a unique opportunity to hear the innovative and proactive strategies that have enabled these speakers to develop their companies into leading ecommerce businesses in Ireland.

The Wexford Business Expo has become one of Wexford Chambers’ flagship events.  Last year, the event took a new direction with more emphasis placed on interactive workshops and providing attendees with actionable strategies for their business and the organisers have made sure that this year’s event will build on that success.  Zurich Ireland CEO, Anthony Brennan said, “Zurich is delighted to support the Wexford Business Expo, one of the highlights in the annual business calendar. Our centre in Wexford is at the heart of our operations and we are very proud to be part of the business and wider community in the county. We look forward to working with Wexford County Council, Wexford Chamber and the local business community to build on the unprecedented success of last year’s event.”

ESET Ireland is pleased to be part of the Wexford Business Expo and is happy to see the digital focus of this year’s event, because, like ESET, it is dedicated to helping business enjoy safer technology! One of the leading independent Irish distributors that introduced a long list of top rated IT security solutions to the Irish market, ESET is committed to offering clients and partners tested IT security products that do the job they promise.

The Wexford Business Expo will once again be the home for Angels’ Den, providing a live arena for local business owners to deliver live pitches to a panel of investors. Angels’ Den is one of the many extremely popular features from last year that will be making a return, with Social Media sessions, Selling on Amazon tutorials and tendering workshops, making sure that it is an event that business people from all sectors cannot afford to miss.

President of Wexford Chamber, Karl Fitzpatrick also spoke about the benefits which businesses could derive from the Expo. “Given its level of connectivity, Wexford has the opportunity to be at the forefront of harnessing ecommerce. Now is the time for local entrepreneurs to secure their unfair share of this rapidly growing online market and The Wexford Business Expo will teach them exactly how to achieve this.”

The 2016 Wexford Business Expo is a free event and will take place in Wexford County Hall on Thursday November 10th 2016 from 10am-6pm.
