Local Enterprise Offices Sponsor Emerging Exporter Category at Irish Export Association Awards

The Local Enterprise Offices are calling on all companies involved in export to enter the Irish Export Association Awards 2015 and have agreed to sponsor the “Emerging Exporter Category” to acknowledge the achievements of SME’s who export.

The category designed around Local Enterprise Office clients is targeted to distinguish the exceptional performance of micro and small companies either in the services or the manufacturing sectors who are demonstrating export potential.

Speaking about the awards, Kieran Comerford, Chairperson of the Network of Local Enterprise Offices said “awards can be an essential business tool and give companies the opportunity to take stock of their achievements, acknowledge the work of their teams, and gain greater public awareness while building a reputation as leaders in their industry”.

Comerford continued to say “When Irish companies choose to export; they are strengthening and expanding our local economies and helping create new jobs. The Local Enterprise Offices are committed to the continued development of SME’s to realise their export potential”.

The Export Industry Awards are organised by the Irish Exporters Association (IEA) to recognise the remarkable achievements of companies working in the export industry.

Companies can now enter from 12 categories and be in with a chance to be selected as the 2015 Exporter of the Year. All winners will be announced at an annual Gala Dinner on Friday, 13th November at the Convention Centre in Dublin.

The awards will acclaim all export industry sectors recognising emerging exporters as well as established indigenous exporters of manufactured goods and services, and onward to the big hitting multinational exporters. There will be an opportunity for companies trading successfully in tough European markets and for those companies trading in high growth markets. Entrants may range from small start-up companies to large international corporations depending on the category.

Companies are welcome to enter more than one category. The overall Exporter of the Year 2015 will be selected from the winners of the individual categories.
