Over 300 business delegates attended a Cross Border Business Support Expo hosted by Newry and Dundalk Chambers of Commerce and supported by InterTradeIreland, Louth County Enterprise Board and the Business Support Unit, Louth County Council on the 30th January in the Carrickdale Hotel. President Deborah Loughran of Newry Chamber stated, “As joint organisers of this annual event, Newry Chamber was delighted with its success in terms of networking opportunities created and the opening of communication channels between local businesses and Support Agencies. “There is a wide selection of business support programmes currently offered to small businesses; however, there is some confusion within the business community about where to look for support and exactly what businesses can avail of. “In this evolving economic climate local businesses need to take advantage of all appropriate support opportunities open to them. This event provided a unique forum for business owners and managers to speak directly to all the local Business Support Providers on a one-to-one basis, on one day, under one roof.” Over 35 Business Support Agencies catering for the needs of businesses located within the Newry Dundalk region exhibited at this Expo. Exhibitors included InterTradeIreland, EURES, Invest NI, Newry & Mourne District Council, Louth County Council, Newry & Mourne Enterprise Agency, Southern Regional College, SOAR, Stem Project, Department of Employment & Learning, Louth Regional Development Centre, Enterprise Ireland, Employability Louth and all of the main lending institutions. Paddy Savage, InterTradeIreland, told Newry Times, “InterTradeIreland was delighted to support this important cross – border business event again this year. “We would like to take this opportunity to remind local companies that we currently have a range of support packages for businesses interested in doing cross – border business or looking for networking/ partnering opportunities across the island.
