2 days - 4 cities - 370 meetings
Trade Mission Ireland to open doors to Irish based multinationals
The Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, today (Wednesday 14th October) begins a two-day Trade and Investment Mission to Dundalk, Waterford, Cork and Galway organised by Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland as part of a joint Global Sourcing initiative. The objective is to maximise sales opportunities for Irish companies with multinational companies based in Ireland, as well as large indigenous Irish companies.

The trade mission in Ireland is a new initiative first introduced last year: this year’s mission will build on the success of the first trade mission last year which covered the major cities in Ireland.

Over the course of the two days, more than 370 one-to-one meetings will take place between 126 indigenous Irish companies and 69 multinational companies. Panel discussions and networking events will take place at each venue, giving Irish companies the opportunity to engage directly with procurement teams from multinational companies across a wide range of sectors including ICT, Web 2.0, Pharma, Biotech, Medical Devices, Consumer, Security and Engineering.
