Vibrant showcase at Chamber Business Expo

Autoboland Jaguar and Land Rover was the place to be on Thursday night last for the Waterford Chamber Business Expo, which saw over 80 exhibitors showcase the vibrant business offering in Waterford right now.Special guest, horse trainer and jockey Joseph O’Brien took time to go around to meet with exhibitors and said he was hugely impressed by the diverse businesses on show and in particular High Horse Events, who provided free tea and coffee for everyone in attendance from their converted horse box.

He also lent his support to the Noah’s Wish to Walk Campaign, who were fundraising and raising awareness through the evening.Speaking at the event, Waterford Chamber President Kathryn Kiely emphasised the importance of taking the time to network with other businesses.
“Events such as these allow us that time away from the office to share ideas and learn from our peers. The buzz in the showroom this evening only emphasises how strong the Waterford business community is and we wish you all continued success.”

Teresa-Jane O’Mahony, BMCI Insurance & Investments Ltd, who sponsored the event for the sixth year running said: “Six years ago myself and my business partner Michelle decided to follow our dreams and go out on our own. There are so many people like us here today, who are working hard to make a difference. Entrepreneurs are the life blood of our business community and to see so many here today is really encouraging.”Pat Drea of Autoboland Jaguar and Land Rover thanked all those who made the event such a great success and in particular their brand ambassador Joseph O’Brien.WLR’s Teresanne O’Reilly was broadcasting live and certainly added to the occasion by playing great music, coupled with interviews with various exhibitors.

The event concluded on a high note as Rob Cass of Falcon Real Estate and Niall Harrington of Fewer Harrington & Partners made a presentation on delivering the vision for Waterford, revealing new images of the North Quays and the 2000 new homes planned for Kilbarry.
The message was clear – North Quays is happening, Kilbarry is happening and there are opportunities abound.
