This Friday and Saturday there is a great event happening in Clayton Whites hotel.
On Friday, Starting at 4pm, there will be a large selection of the businesses and entrepreneurs who are active in Wexford. There is a huge entrepreneurial community in Wexford. This is the chance to come see and meet all of these wonderful innovative companies and Entrepreneurs. Norah Casey from Dragons Den will be speaking also so there should be plenty to learn and we will most likely be inspired! There will be a panel discussion afterwards too, so plenty of opportunities to learn and network. This event is FREE!
On Saturday, over 80 clubs, charities and societies will be showcasing what they do. So bring the family and be part of this positive event! Special guest Kevin Doyle will be dropping in to say hi also!
