A public meeting on its two-day Expo initiative will be held by Bank of Ireland at the River Island Hotel on this Thursday evening, October 1st at 6-15pm.
The Bank of Ireland in Castleisland is planning a two-day Enterprise Town Expo at the local community centre on Friday and Saturday 13th and 14th of November. Part of a nationwide initiative by the bank, the event is designed to show-case the businesses, services, cultural and sporting outlets and facilities the town has at its disposal. Thursday evening’s meeting is being arranged to provide information on the expo.
Support and Generate Business
“Enterprise Town is an initiative whereby we seek to work with the local business community to plan, develop and implement a range of activities that will support and generate business in the local community,” said branch manager, Paddy Garvey.
“This initiative also involves the wider community i.e. schools, clubs, societies and charities, ensuring everyone can get involved in the showcasing of their town.
“Showcasing of all the town has to offer is achieved by way of two Expos, one of which will be held on Friday 13th November, which is the Business and Community Expo and the second event, which is the Sports and Community Expo will be held on Saturday 14th, November.
Student Enterprise Award
“Bank of Ireland, Castleisland will also work closely with the schools in the town and present an Enterprise Award to the winning student from the local schools that take part. Both events are being held in Castleisland Community Centre.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for all businesses, clubs, societies and schools to showcase and sell their wares to the public. We provide the platform for them to achieve this and from businesses at incubation stage and perhaps working from home, to those well established businesses, all are welcome to attend.
“In addition to the showcasing, we will also have keynote speakers over the two days. These will include some local celebrities from the business and sports world and we will also include panel discussions that will benefit those exhibiting. There will be lots of entertainment and fun for families, children and the general public and it’s free to attend for both exhibitors and members of the public,” Mr. Garvey concluded.
