What West Waterford’s Largest Business Community Achieved In 2016

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:

  • Welcomed 50 new members to the Chamber community - maintaining our strong representative voice for local business.
  • Sold over €420,000 worth of Chamber Vouchers which can only be used to buy products and services sold by Chamber member businesses, keeping this money in our region.
  • Received over 400 nominations for our 2016 Chamber FBD Business Awards across 13 categories – recognising excellence, achievement and social contribution in West Waterford.
  • Made representations on behalf of the business community to ensure Dungarvan & West Waterford received due funding, commitment and priority from our County & City Council.
  • Compiled a weekly Chamber newsletter, keeping the community up to date with news, developments, business tips and special offers of value to members.

  • Welcomed over 800 attendees to our 19 Chamber networking events, including an Evening on the Greenway, our Bloomsday Garden Party, the Park Hotel Early Bird Dinner and more - providing information, B2B sales, PR and a strengthening of links within our community.  
  • Gathered and shared special offers, job listings, events and news through social media, across our Chamber, ‘What’s On In West Waterford’ and ‘Dungarvan Deals’ Facebook Pages.
  • Kept businesses informed during the Smarter Travel Grattan Square works – many times acting as an intermediary and the only vessel of communication between the construction team, the client and those affected (businesses and general public).

 

  • Lobbied for the continuation of 90 Minutes Free Parking in Scanlan’s Yard which was officially adopted in July 2016 by Waterford City & County Council.
  • We researched, compiled and published a new ‘Welcome Pack’ to support people moving to Dungarvan–providing key information and contacts to help people settling here feel comfortable and part of our community.
  • Worked together to build on the success of “Dungarvan Aglow”, by expanding the activities, events and illuminations that attracted attention to our town right through the Christmas period and yielded hugely positive responses from visitors and local shoppers.
  • Welcomed, following lengthy lobbying, a new Coach set Down Space on Davitt’s Quay and Bus Parking Bays at The Lookout  and won ‘Coach Friendly Status’ for Dungarvan through the Dungarvan Tourist Office, one of only two towns in Ireland to achieve this.
  • Worked with other agencies to implement an integrated tourism plan and welcomed over 10,000 people to the Dungarvan Tourist Office in 2016, raising West Waterford's profile as a great place to shop and visit, live and work.
