Over 650,000 Employed in Chamber Member Businesses – Week of Nationwide Business Events Starts Next Monday

Chamber Week starts next Monday the 16th of September with Chambers across the country running events showcasing the benefit of joining a network of businesses with over 650,000 employees, who receive over €23 billion in salaries annually. Running until Friday 20th September, events include seminars, site visits and expos showing how new members can find new customers, access better training opportunities and work to improve their local business environment and how Chambers support business locally, regionally and nationally.

Chambers Ireland Chief Executive Ian Talbot said, “Chamber Week is the perfect way for businesses and their staff to see what their local Chamber can do for them. There are great events running all over Ireland allowing people to get a taste of the benefits of membership before joining. Member businesses are succeeding because they become more productive by learning from and selling to each other and create critical mass to effectively lobby to develop more successful, thriving local communities and business environments.  Being involved with a local Chamber makes a real difference to a business. As part of the Chamber Network, members become part of a local and national lobbying voice and get vital support when needed. Can a business afford not to be part of it?” Talbot concluded.

Wexford Chamber in association with the Wexford County Enterprise Board, is hosting a free iON Digital Marketing Roadshow, “Want To Be Liked or Want To Be Rich?” during Chamber Week 2013.  
Business Owners, Marketing & Communication Professionals and Managing Directors are invited to attend this workshop on Thursday 19th September in the Talbot Hotel Wexford from 8.00am – 9.30am. Guest speaker, Niall McKeown, Managing Director at iON will question if digital marketers are picking the right tactics and illustrate how to evaluate and create a high performance digital marketing strategy.

Speaking about the event, Madeleine Quirke, CEO, Wexford Chamber said that, “one of the difficulties experienced by many digital marketers is in recognising what opportunities exist in the marketplace.  We are beginning to realise that ‘likes’ do not necessarily equate to revenue.  This workshop will focus on how to create a digital strategy for your business using a tried and tested method of strategy creation, helping you make the right decisions for your business.”
