Exhibition opportunities: Limited availability!

There are only a small number of opportunities remaining to get involved with Environment Ireland® as an exhibitor. As well as being a significant event in a business and policy sense, Environment Ireland® has developed a strong networking dimension.

It has become an event where key players expect to meet every year and enjoy the networking opportunity it provides. The Environment Ireland exhibition area is limited and sells out every year.

An important platform for your organisation to interact with a senior audience of 300+ attendees from across the Irish environment sector. Contact Sam Tobin on +353 (0)1 661 3755 or email sam.tobin@environmentireland.ie for further information on how to feature your organisation at the conference.
