Longford Chamber of Commerce & Industry have announced details of Longford Business Expo 2018, which will take place in the Riverside Shopping Centre on Friday, September 28 and Saturday, September 29. 

It is the first time that the centre will open up to the public since the last Expo in 2012, organised by Longford Chamber of Commerce. Speaking at the recent launch, Chamber President, Niamh Donlon, paid tribute to Longford County Council and LCRL, who have helped drive the project along. She said: “The project could not happen without the funding from LCRL and in  particular I want to thank Margaret Walsh who as a fantastic link person with LCRL and then the board members of the LCRL and LCDC who ultimately approved the funding.”

Longford Chamber of Commerce and Industry  have been working closely with the team at the Local Enterprise Office Longford in the build-up to  Longford Business Expo which will be one of the largest commercial events in the Midlands this year.

The Expo will showcase over 100+ local businesses and will also feature a number of guest speakers and workshops. One of the confirmed speakers will include former Dragon’s Den investor and radio host, Bobby Kerr.

Said Ms. Donlon: “The weekend will showcase the many industries and service businesses in the county but there will also be a big focus on retail as we look to re-establish Longford as a retail force.”

The event goes ahead with the support and co-operation of the new owners of the centre, Omniplex, and Ms. Donlon also paid tribute to Omniplex Chief Executive, Mark Anderson. She said: “Mark Anderson has been very supportive and is keen to show how their plans for the Riverside Shopping Centre will play a key part in the town's rejuvenation. These are very exciting times with a number of major projects in the pipeline for the town which includes the Providers building and the Longford County Council's Camlin Quarter plans. Businesses can genuinely start to look to the future with a degree of certainty and optimism. The expo later this month will be a great chance for local businesses to showcase what they do and also to learn about other local businesses. There are only a few stands now available for businesses wishing to take part and those interested should contact Longford Chamber on info@longfordchamber.ie or they can also register their interest online at www.longfordbusinessexpo2018.ie or contact  Niamh Donlon, Chamber President on  087 660 4010.
