Luminate Conference – Wexford Spiegeltent, Custom House Quay, Wexford

The aim of the conference was to promote and encourage entrepreneurship in Wexford and the South East.

This event was specifically aimed at owners of young businesses who would not normally attend business conferences, and this event had a different look and feel to a standard conference event. The overall theme is one of optimism through challenging times, and the delegates are encouraged to take an active part in the event. The Instant Opinion system allows delegates to submit their questions by text, and a key part of each session is the Q&A, where the three speakers respond to the questions in a group discussion format.

2Cubed joins the Enniscorthy Chamber of Commerce

enniscorthychamberofcommerc

2Cubed is proud to have become a member of the Enniscorthy Chamber of Commerce.  Today the Chamber held lunch in the Riverside Hotel in Enniscorthy, and we found it a good way of meeting local businesses to share ideas and strengthen existing relationships with current customers.  You realise that you don’t get a chance to have space to just talk to other businesses outside a formal meeting so it’s nice to have a casual chat and really build friendships in a business environment.  We have developed and designed many local business websites recently and it’s great to hear positive feedback from these businesses. Really how else would you hear this?

The Chamber lunches or network events facilitate this in a local sense. It’s also important that events like this don’t take a day out of your work life so having them executed in a timely fashion is very important.
