Our Chamber community brings businesses together – providing support, developing our local economy and promoting our commitment to excellence through innovation, personal service and value. Our unity allows us to present West Waterford as a strong, vibrant region, attracting the visitors and investment that will help us to grow into the future.
Working together, the West Waterford Chamber business community will continue to grow from strength to strength in 2017, but here’s a reminder of what we achieved together in 2016:
After a bumper year of consistent voucher sales, the steady growth of the voucher scheme year on year continued in 2016 with over €400,000 worth of Chamber vouchers sold!
One of the main reasons vouchers are proving so popular is convenience - Chamber Vouchers can be used in over 100 local businesses and that they can be purchased in €10, €25 and €50 denominations so a gift can be made up to any value. Their flexibility and versatility makes them an ideal, practical gift for any occasion and a great tax-free bonus option for employers.
Following the most popular awards nomination process ever, which saw over 400 nominations, the much anticipated winners of the Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber FBD Business Awards 2016 were announced in an Awards Ceremony at Lismore Castle on Friday the 4th November.
During an elegant, entertaining evening, the deserving winners in each category were recognised and the winners of the Overall Grand Prizes, sponsored by FBD and worth €1000 each, were announced. All of the awards were independently adjudicated by RIKON, Ireland's leading Service Innovation Centre, based in Waterford Institute of Technology.
The shortlists for this year’s Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber FBD Business Awards have arrived! We had an incredible response across all categories and we'd like to thank everyone for getting involved to help us recognise excellence in our community.
The team at RIKON have been hard at work sorting through the deluge of nominations and the results can be seen here.
