The next six months promises to be an active one for members of Clonmel Chamber of Commerce. The organisation has just published its event listing and members can look forward to a range of events including networking, conferences, seminars and site visits. The Chamber, one of the most active in Ireland, reshaped its membership model in late 2009. As a result most of the events planned are free to Chamber members.
The National Enterprise Conference, hosted by the organisation annually in Clonmel, will be held in Hotel Minella on October 19th. The speaker line up for the event is complete and will be announced in August. Last year’s conference was the best attended to date and welcomed speakers such as Brian Purcell from The Apprentice, Jerry Kennelly, Andrea Pappin, Nicola Byrne and local entrepreneurs including, founder of O’Donnell’s Crisps, Ed O’Donnell.
“The calibre of speakers lined up for the 2012 is just as good as previous years” said Chamber President Valerie O’Reilly. “The conference attracts delegates from all over Ireland and we regard this as a hugely positive event for the town of Clonmel each year” she added.
The Chamber will be welcoming delegates from China for the ‘Doing Business in China’ event in September. Chamber Week 2012 will be staged nationally in October and Clonmel Chamber, as the organisation that devised the concept, will be at the forefront with a number of events including an event looking at the main issues of concern to the business community in the town. To round off the year the organisation will be staging a tasting and networking event at the Tullamore Dew factory on the Waterford Road and the traditional ‘Budget Breakfast’.
“All of these events are only possible because of the support of our members and sponsors. The next few months will be as busy as ever for us. All of these events are built around the idea of helping our members to be more successful in what they do and to make Clonmel a better place in which to do business” added the Chamber President.
