Chamber News October 2013
Glanbia Kilkenny Business Awards:
The shortlisted 62 Finalists across 19 categories for the 2013 Business Awards were announced this week. It was a considerable achievement in itself to become a finalist as they had been shortlisted from 134 entrants, a record for our Business Awards. See list of Finalists at www.kilkennychamber.ie The Interview process is now completed as the 62 Finalists made their pitch to an independent panel of 21 Jurors divided into seven panels of three.
Once again the standard of presentation by each finalist was exceptionally high and the jurors were very careful with their assessment and final deliberations. At the end of the interview process the individual jury chair reported back to the KBA Event Executive to advise their Jury’s scoring outcomes.
The KBA Event executive report the findings back to the board for final sanction and ratification, but the winners will remain confidential until the night of the Gala ‘black-tie’ Banquet at the Lyrath Estate Hotel on Thursday 12th December where the guest of honour will be the Minister for the Environment Phil Hogan T.D.
Tickets to the event are now on sale at €95 each. Table of ten €900. Contact Sharon at 056-7752767 or Sharon@kilkennychamber.ie
Chamber ‘Shop Local’ campaign for Kilkenny
Last week we launched our ‘Shop Local’ campaign for Kilkenny. All of Kilkenny’s Business stakeholders have come on board with us in what we hope will be a very successful ‘Shop Local’ initiative for businesses in Kilkenny in the lead up to the hectic Christmas period and beyond to the January Sales.
The ‘Shop Local’ campaign makes so much sense not alone for businesses but indeed for employment and jobs in the local economy too. If you earn your money in the local economy you should also spend it there….it just makes sound sense on many fronts to do so.
Apart from all local businesses backing the initiative so too are the Borough Council, KCLR96FM, Kilkenny People newspaper, Kilkenny Tourism, Kilkenny GAA as well as nine time All Ireland senior hurling medallist Henry Shefflin and RTE’s Ear to the Ground presenter Helen Carroll.
The vehicle that guarantees tat your money is spent in Kilkenny is the Chambers Shopping/Gift Vouchers. Your money can only be spent in Kilkenny when you purchase chamber vouchers and they come in €10, €20 & €50 denominations. The real good news here is that they are now accepted in over 100 shops and stores in Kilkenny. See www.kilkennychamber.ie for full listing of shops and stores accepting Chamber Vouchers.
Retailers who want to accept Chamber Shopping Vouchers may do so by contacting Sharon at 056-7752767 or Sharon@kilkennychamber.ie There is no commission or fees charged to retailers by the Chamber. This is a FREE administration service by your local Chamber of Commerce.
Chamber Shopping Vouchers are sold at the Chamber offices at The Maltings, Tilbury Place, James St (beside CBS secondary school) St Canice’s Kilkenny Credit Union, High St & MacDonagh Junction, Murphy Jewellers & Graham Shoes, High St and Dee Gibney Properties, Patrick st, Kilkenny.
