Fingal County Enterprise Board is organising a free seminar on 27 September focused on exporting for small businesses in conjunction with Enterprise Ireland and Dublin Fingal Chamber.
The seminar is called ‘Exporting our way out of Recession’ and is part of Fingal Enterprise Week.
“Exporting for the first time, especially for a small business owner, can be a very daunting experience, with perceived red-tape and obstacles along the way,” said Oisin Geoghegan, CEO of Fingal County Enterprise Board.
“To increase their chances of breaking into new markets, first-time exporters need specialist advice and support services around market intelligence, routes to market, documentation, trading laws and cashflow considerations. This seminar is aimed at the small business owner who wants to explore the export potential of their business, perhaps for the first time.”
Export markets are forecast to grow by 9pc this year to over €177 billion, according to the Irish Exporters Association and there’s an estimated €14.8 billion worth of new business up for grabs for exporters in Ireland this year.
Bewley’s Hotel near Dublin Airport is the venue for the export advice seminar, which runs from 2pm to 5pm on 27 September. Admission is free, but places are limited and bookings must be made in advance by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephoning (01) 8900 800.
