Wexford Business Awards finalists announced
Shortlisted Businesses demonstrate innovation, determination and resilience Over seventy of Wexford’s most innovative and resilient businesses from retailers to manufacturing have been announced as finalists in the 2012 Wexford Business Awards in partnership with Wexford County Council, the Environmental Protection Agency, Wexford County Enterprise Board, AIB and Wexford Chamber.
The awards aim to recognise those individuals and businesses that represent entrepreneurialism, innovation, diversity and the talent needed to drive a business in today’s challenging environment. Commenting on the calibre and diversity of finalists, Madeleine Quirke, CEO, Wexford Chamber said, “In order to encourage confidence in Wexford businesses, we need to showcase and celebrate those businesses that have demonstrated innovation and entrepreneurship over that past year. With 14 award categories the awards are an excellent way for companies, large or small, to showcase their achievements.”
Having being shortlisted I will take this opportunity to demonstrate the innovative business / guiding practices here at SEAi. Its also a time for me to showcase the quality environment and sustainable guided bass fishing opportunities we have here in Wexford. This is why people travel from all over the world to visit SEAi. I will do this as I have done for the past ten years. Much more than that I will further increase the awareness of the fishery, its special status and the socio/economic impact that it has in Wexford within circles of people that may not have been previously aware of its existence.
The possible association of a tourism award with a bass angling business would no doubt have very far reaching positive impacts for the industry – fingers crossed.
