Time is quickly running out to book your place for one of the premier business networking events in Ireland this year, MeetWest 2016. Now in its sixth year, Meetwest is to take place on November 24 and 25 in the McWilliam Park Hotel, Claremorris. There are many reasons why you should attend Meetwest and the organisers have tried to capture some of the most important ones below.
Referrals and new business
The most obvious benefit and the reason most delegates decide to participate in MeetWest. Business referrals through networking are usually higher quality than referrals through other forms of marketing.
With a motivated group of 300 delegates comes an abundance of opportunities.
MeetWest can provide you with a great source of connections, and really open the door to talk to people that you might not otherwise be able to easily talk to or find. And, it is not just about who you network with directly either – that person also has a network you can tap into.
MeetWest is a great way to tap into advice and expertise that you might not otherwise be able to get. This year on day one of the event there will be talks from experts in the field of strategy and how to find opportunities from the impending Brexit, digital marketing, and sales. These talks will be followed by a networking dinner with guest speaker, world renowned global economist David McWilliams.
Raise your profile
Business networking at MeetWest can help to build your reputation as a knowledgeable and reliable person in your field by offering useful information or tips to people who need it. You are also more likely to get more leads and referrals as you will be the one who pops into their head when they need what you offer.
It is important to surround yourself with positive, uplifting, people that help you to grow and thrive as a business owner or manager. And MeetWest provides this in spades. A conference of people that are really going for it.
Networking, and pushing yourself to talk to people you do not know, will give you increased confidence the more you do it. MeetWest is great for this because it pushes you to grow and learn how to make conversations and lasting connections with people you do not know.
Satisfaction from helping others
At MeetWest you are sure to meet business owners or managers who have problems or issues within their business that need solving. Maybe you will be the one to solve a problem they have and get a great result from it.
Chance of winning back your delegate fee
This year for the first time delegates have the chance to win back their delegate fee. Each week one delegate will be selected at random and the fee returned to him/her.
Last but not least, as well as making business contacts, you might even make some new friends.
In the words of William Arthur Ward, “Opportunities are like sunrises. If you wait too long, you miss them.” Do not miss out on the last chance to raise the profile of your business this year. Book now at www.meetwest.ie
