NI Small Business Conference 2019 kicks off in Newry on September 19th

  • The annual NI Small Business Conference is due to kick off in Newry's Sean Hollywood Arts Centre next month on Thursday September 19th. 

    While Belfast is home to some of the year's biggest tech and business conferences, Newry has firmly established itself as a Northern Ireland tech and business hotspot thanks in part to the efforts of firms such as First Derivatives and the actions of groups such as Newry BID.

    The annual NI Small Business Conference will be held in Newry this year and is being organised by the Newry Chamber of Commerce & Trade in partnership with Newry BID, the Federation of Small Businesses NI, and the local district council.

    This year's theme will be on "Delivering Growth" for small businesses, with talks on topics randing from funding available for small businesses to digital strategies for revenue growth, doing business outside Northern Ireland, and managing HR and legal issues. Guest speakers will include international leadership coach and business strategist Simon Haigh, who will give a keynote address entitled "Closing the Deal – A Way to Win Business." 

    Newry BID BID Manager Eamonn Connolly commented on the importance of holding an event such as this in Newry: "The location of the NI Small Business Conference in the centre of Newry recognises the importance of the city and region as a location to do business. Newry has grown based on a spirit of innovation and partnership and we look forward to an informative event to enable further business growth."

    This is a ticketed conference, with tickets priced at £15 + VAT and available now via eventbrite.
