Last Friday morning, Limerick Chamber launched, in association with our lead sponsor LIT, the Limerick Region Business Awards. We founded the awards to allow us to celebrate and acknowledge the achievements, creativity, successes and innovations of businesses in the Limerick region. We want to give our regional businesses a platform to formally recognise their success. Frank Ryan, CEO of Enterprise Ireland was our guest speaker & I have to say an inspiration. Frank presented the facts on Ireland – facts that we have all been guilty of overlooking in recent times. Ireland has highest educated workforce in the world. Our exports in 2010 exceeded pre-recession levels and this year our indigenous exports will exceed pre-recession levels. The Chamber have uploaded a video clip by Frank, click here to see it. It really helps to focus the mind on the positive economic story Ireland has to tell!

But back to the awards… the Chamber has founded these business awards to celebrate business in the region. We know that there are many success stories out there and we want to share them with everybody. So download an application form and nominate your company or a company you trade and work with. We have 7 different category of awards so there is a space and opportunity for every size of company. Let’s Celebrate & acknowledge the fantastic business that exists in the region!
