Why should you attend PLATO EBR CONNECT 2013?

The theme of this event is Collaborate to Compete which focuses on the potential for creating business opportunities on an all-island basis. The purpose of the event is to CONNECT PLATO Participant Companies in the East Border Region and Southern Region on the island of Ireland under the wider PLATO Ireland umbrella so as to promote growth and innovation among the delegates participating at the event. There will be a number of opportunities ‘for growing your business’  and ‘partnering up’ and key agency representatives should be available to make companies aware of current funding supports available for businesses in an all-island context. The event is not simply a networking opportunity but a rich environment for learning and sharing – promoting opportunities for doing business with partners (for example PLATO Parent Companies i.e. multi-nationals committing to supporting SME growth on an all-island basis), and for creating new business in new markets (for example identifying sub-contracting opportunities and finding out about new trends).
