Futurallia Quebec Trade Mission, May 08

The fine tuned organisation of Futurallia Quebec 2008 generated a record number of 9,000 business meetings in less than 48 hours.  This non-stop business “speed dating” creates significant opportunities for business people from around the world.  This is the fourth time that a delegation from County Cork has participated in the Futurallia event and the feedback from Cork companies has been excellent;

 “This has been a win win experience for Bárd na nGleann.  We have had valuable meetings and the potential to create long term partnerships” said Léonie Ni Charthaigh, GM, Bárd na nGleann International.

Kathy O’Dwyer from Job Options Bureau said, “This is my third Futurallia event and I have signed up for the next one in 2009.  The event is very well organized with excellent support for our Cork based bossiness.  This event offered great networking and research opportunities, I would highly recommend it.”

The internal networking between delegates of the Cork delegation also proved to be of key importance as David Olden, General Manager, Ecocel noted,

Futurallia has been an excellent networking experience.  It has proven to be a lot more focused than I had anticipated.  This event has given me a great opportunity to make international contacts.  The internal networking with my fellow Cork delegates has also been invaluable”.  David Olden, General Manager, Ecocel.
