In a world that is ever-changing and becoming increasingly reliant on digital communication, there’s one thing that will never change. People do business with people. When you take the time to invest in relationships with your network, your business reaps the rewards. While networking happens at all events, Cork Chamber hosts regular events focused specifically on networking that takes the ‘work’ out of it for you.
We know you like to hear from inspirational business leaders. We know you want to learn about innovation and new ways of doing things. We know you want to expand your knowledge and deepen your understanding on a range of topics. And we know you are busy. Cork Chamber hosts multiple Business Breakfast briefings throughout the year featuring exciting guest speakers and covering a broad range of topics that matter to you. These briefings run from 7:30am to 9:00am meaning you can take the time to invest in your development without taking hours from your busy day.
It is important to look at the bigger picture sometimes. Cork Chamber runs several flagship events perfect for corporate entertainment and networking. In February each year we host Cork Chamber’s annual dinner. This prestigious event is attended by 1,000 guests making it the largest business event in the region. Over 93% of attendees at this year’s Annual Dinner made new business contacts with 63% saying they expect to do business with someone as a result of attending. On the night we also celebrate the very best in Cork business through the presentation of the esteemed Cork Company of the Year Awards.
Cork Chamber’s Dublin dinner has grown year on year and now attracts over 600 guests including political decision makers and business leaders. Its importance in forging and strengthening relationships between the Dublin and Cork business communities will continue to grow as we cement Cork’s position as Ireland’s second city.
