Have you booked your free place at Ireland's leading business conference and exhibition to help your business save money, boost profits, win new business and improve your environmental performance?
Taking place in the Canal Court, Newry on Thursday 2nd October delegates will enjoy a fantastic line-up of speakers, excellent networking opportunities and a rich array of exhibitors all keen to showcase the solutions they can offer. A full programme will ensure delegates go away with more than just a few new business cards.
Giving his support to Green Biz 20014 and scheduled to open the day's proceedings, Environment Minister Mark H Durkan commented "To deliver a better environment and a stronger economy we need businesses, small and large, to look closely at the way in which they operate, to learn from others and to adopt good environmental practices. There is a clear business case for doing so, not just because of the significant cost savings which can improve competitiveness, particularly for small businesses, but also because of the positive environmental outcomes. I am impressed by the way the Green Biz team are getting the message out through the cross-border partnership between the local authorities and business."
The event, organised by the STEM Project, a project supported by the European Union's INTERREG IVA Cross Border Programme, is free to attend but registration is essential.
Green Biz 2014 will be hosted by ex-Apprentice finalist and regional vice president with Groupon UK, Jim Eastwood who will share his very own top tips for staff motivation and the significant role this can play in a business's journey to make cost savings and improve efficiencies. UTV's Business Correspondent, Jamie Delargy will provide delegates with a snappy business brief on the renewable energy market and future sustainability issues for local businesses.
This year's Green Biz Event will also include a Green Biz Environmental Award for businesses and individual recognition.
