Local businesses invited to make connections at Northern Ireland’s fastest growing networking conference

Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NI Chamber) is inviting businesses from across Northern Ireland to join them for its Annual Networking Conference and Business Showcase supported by Firmus Energy.

The conference, which takes place on 8 October 2014 from 8.30am-1.30pm in the Europa Hotel Belfast, is designed to give businesses from across Northern Ireland the opportunity to meet, engage and participate in networking activities designed to create new business connections and opportunities.

Ann McGregor, Chief Executive at NI Chamber said: “Networking is a great way to market your business in a very informal environment. Whether your aim is to increase your customer base, find new markets or create partnerships – networking is the key to unlocking potential growth.

“You can also gain worthwhile market information from other businesses as well as potential customers. Information gleaned from a conversation could help you to adapt your product or service, perhaps even to focus on a new opportunity.”

Guests will also hear from keynote speaker Jyllene Miller, Senior Vice President for Concentrix, an inspirational salesperson who has won a number of global clients for the company including Go Daddy, ASOS, Channel 4 and Tourism Ireland.

This year’s event will also feature a large market place with over 60 companies exhibiting their products and services, to showcase the best of Northern Ireland business.

NI Chamber’s Annual Networking Conference is the largest and fastest growing networking conference in Northern Ireland with over 250 delegates attending last year’s event. Over 350 people are expected to attend the conference in Belfast next month.
