Packed programme of events planned for Mid and East Antrim Enterprise Week

A week-long series of networking sessions, workshops, debates and information clinics aimed at promoting, exploring and celebrating business and entrepreneurship in Mid and East Antrim takes place this year from Monday November 18 to Saturday November 22.

Business leaders, Council and industry specialists have designed an action-packed programme set to unlock the potential of the Borough’s burgeoning new business landscape and provide opportunities to learn, develop and succeed.

A packed schedule of free events during the week have been specially designed to capitalise on the area’s entrepreneurial potential.

The initiative is being led by Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, in partnership with business support organisations across the Borough.

Industry specialists, local entrepreneurs and support agencies are available to ensure that the aspirations of the area’s budding entrepreneurs and businesses are realised.

Mayor Councillor Maureen Morrow said: “The line-up of events for this year’s Enterprise Week is superb.

“I am looking forward to spending time with our business leaders and budding young and newly founded entrepreneurs in Mid and East Antrim.

“We have so much potential and ambition and Enterprise Week will certainly deliver on its aim of educating, supporting and helping to develop and grow opportunities and economic growth throughout our Borough. 

“There is an action-packed programme of exciting events planned over the course of the week and we look forward to welcoming everybody along.”

Councillor Gregg McKeen, Chair of Council’s Borough Growth Committee, said: “I would like to thank the partner organisations who have worked successfully with council to develop this exciting programme of events to celebrate Enterprise Week 2019.

“Growing the economy is our number one strategic priority and by continuing to work closely with our partners we are ideally positioned to help develop opportunities to create jobs and support the growth of new and existing businesses to develop skills and employment opportunities.

“It continues to be an exciting time and delivery of events such as these tabled through Enterprise Week 2019 clearly shows that Mid and East Antrim is open for business.”
