All the Business Support Agencies catering for the needs of businesses located within the Newry Dundalk region will be exhibiting at this unique event.  This event will provide an ideal opportunity for local businesses to speak to all relevant Business Support Agencies in one morning, on a one-to-one basis, under one roof! There are 30 stands on the day with information to help your business including PaycheckPlus.

Meet members of the PaycheckPlus team who can advise you on your UK and Irish payroll needs and enter our free draw on the day.

This is event is joint hosted by Newry Chamber of Commerce & Trade and Dundalk Chamber of Commerce, Louth Local Enterprise Office and is supported by InterTradeIreland.

There is an array of business support programmes currently offered to small businesses; however, there is some confusion within the business community about where to look for this support and exactly what they can avail of.  In this challenging economic climate local businesses need to take advantage of all support opportunities afforded to them.

The aim of this event is to provide a forum where businesses can find out all they need to know about the support they can and should avail of. We will have two guest speakers at the event; Karen Daly from Slenderchoice will share her story on how she successfully secured funding for her business.  InterTradeIreland will deliver a workshop advising delegates on how to draft a wining tender application.

Cross-border trade presents businesses with an invaluable opportunity to increase their sales, develop new markets and benefit from all-island expertise and innovation. We would like to encourage all SMEs from Newry and Dundalk and the surrounding areas to attend this event to see exactly what opportunities are available to you and how to access them.

Confirmed exhibitors at the event include, InterTrade Ireland, Invest NI, Newry & Mourne District Council,  Newry & Mourne Enterprise Agency, Southern Regional College, Regional Development Centre, Enterprise Ireland, EURES, Employability Louth, all of the main lending institutions, plus many more.

This event is open to all and entry is free of charge.  It will operate on a ‘business drop-in clinic’ format; whereby you can call in to the event at any stage between the hours of 9.30am to 12.30pm on the 29th January 2015.
