Dublin Airport is set to be the headline sponsor of NI Chamber’s Festival of Business, which returns to St George’s Market on Wednesday 14 September 2022.  It is also backed by supporting sponsors, Amazon and Belfast City Council.

The event, which is the largest of its kind in Northern Ireland will see more than 700 businesspeople gather in the famous marketplace to network and learn from a huge variety of speakers and exhibitors in a single morning.

As well as over 100 exhibitors, attendees will have the chance to hear from a stellar line-up on the main stage which includes Colin Hughes, Chief Executive of Four Star Pizza and Fiona Simpson, Head of Commercial NI at Amazon.

Encouraging businesspeople in all sectors to get involved, Ann McGregor, Chief Executive NI Chamber said:

“The Festival of Business has always been one of the highlights of our calendar and this year, it’s set to be bigger and better than ever. The Festival will be a true celebration of the diversity, energy and innovation of NI businesses. It’s the ideal opportunity to enjoy networking in a lively, interactive environment, with the added bonus of being able to learn from a line-up of exemplars from renowned local and global brands.

“It’s also the perfect place for any business interested in showcasing products and services to a really engaged, in-person audience to exhibit. So much so that we’ve already had significant interest from a vast range of companies, all interested in securing a pitch on the day. It’s a really eclectic mix, which we are confident will be for a very interesting morning.

“Dublin Airport has been a long-standing partner on this event and we are delighted that they will be headline sponsor once again in 2022. The partnership is a very successful one which enables NI Chamber to deliver an event of such scale and quality for our members.”

Vincent Harrison, Managing Director Dublin Airport added:

“Dublin Airport is delighted to be the headline sponsor of the NI Chamber Annual Conference again this year. Dublin Airport is proud to provide vital international connectivity to the Northern Ireland market, and this conference provides a wonderful opportunity to further strengthen relations and engage with the business community. We look forward to a morning of networking, engagement and a great line up of speakers and I wish the Northern Ireland Chamber team a successful event.”
