The end of year awards season is firmly upon us and we’ve had a busy couple of weeks at Roomex. Matt, our Director of Contracting attended the Eircom Spiders awards in the Convention Centre Dublin and the very next night Michael, Sales Director was in the same venue for the Irish Export Awards.
The Eircom Spiders brings together the great and good of the Irish web design world and Matt was invited to attend by our partners Travelport. A total of 24 awards were presented, a true test of endurance for the host, Irish TV personality Jennifer Maguire. The evening offered the perfct opportunity for intensive networking in a relaxed environment.
The Export Awards ceremony, in its 14th year was attended by over 500 delegates and was hosted by Newstalk presenter and former Minister for Agriculture, Ivan Yates. The high profile nature of the event is reflected in the fact that ambassadors and dignitaries from 24 Embassies in Ireland were represented as was the Irish government in the form of Minister Alex White TD who gave the keynote address.
Overall winner and Irish Exporter of the Year was Aerogen, based in Dangan, Co Galway, the company makes nebulisers which allows medical staff to deliver drugs to the patient using an inhaler which direct the medicine to where it will be most effective. The company also carried off the Life Sciences Exporters of the Year.
Congratulations to all the winners both exporters and those involved in technology, two of the key industries in which Roomex is involved. It was great to see so many of our clients at the events and we look forward to working with you again next year!
