On Friday, 8 November, first, second and third generation Irish professionals from around the world are set to gather at Kings Place, London to tap into the ever expanding Irish diaspora, developing relationships that will help grow their businesses both in the UK and across the globe. 

Titled ‘Moving into Growth’ the event, now in its third year, will bring together leading Irish entrepreneurs and innovators from the USA, Ireland, UK and Europe to create a platform for London based and international Irish-owned companies to connect and grow their business overseas.

In addition to its exhibition zone and entrepreneur pitches, the conference combines practical workshops with leading business insight from keynote speakers including Tony O’Reilly Jnr, CEO of Providence Resources Ltd., Dee Forbes, MD of Discovery Networks Western Europe,  Andy Black, World Poker Tournament Champion, and  John Bird, Founder of The Big Issue.

A private not-for profit enterprise, IIBN conference is open to all Irish business owners and senior professionals who wish to engage with fellow attendees,  develop links and foster on-going trade through the network.

Jonathan Grey, founder and CEO of London-based Ovation Incentives and board member of the IIBN London Chapter, said: ‘The world is becoming a smaller place in which to do business thanks to the constant changes and advancements in technologies and logistics. However, advice, introductions and mentorship from business professionals who have gone through the process can be invaluable to professionals looking to expand their businesses abroad. This is the purpose of Moving into Growth.’
