PRESS RELEASEKerry EXPO 2014Kerry businesses to champion Kerry as one of the top choices in Ireland for people to live and workThis year fourteen of Kerry’s largest industries together with twelve sponsors such as Kerry County Council, IDA, Enterprise Ireland, Local Enterprise Office to mention just a few and organisations such as the GAA & Kerry District League have all collaborated on a major road signage campaign.  The campaign sets out to encourage visitors and migrants to come live and work in Kerry. It depicts the reality of that what lies behind the Kingdoms magical scenery, is over 1000 job vacancies. The campaign references some of Kerry’s major employers who are either currently recruiting or will be recruiting in in the near future.  Some of these job vacancies will be showcased at the Kerry EXPO in the INEC Killarney on April 9th 2017. Campaign and EXPO organiser Liz Maher is hoping that those visiting the county over the Christmas will mark their calendar and return to Kerry for the EXPO. Elin Sorensen of GHQ design and Fred McDonogh of Redchair Recruitment, stated that this was a particularly exciting campaign to work on and the support & collaboration between sponsors, organisations and industry has been truly amazing.As Kerry climbs towards recovery, businesses are now looking positively towards expansion. Some of the major obstacles and challenges they are facing are recruiting the much needed skillsets that evaporated during the recessionary period. Despite concerns over global volatility many Kerry based companies have continued to expand their interests abroad which has inevitably led to the growth in job opportunities within the Kingdom. While the county experiences a mild economic recovery, businesses in Kerry believe that can champion Kerry as one of Ireland’s top choice locations for people to live and work. When evaluating a potential relocation, factors such as quality of life coupled with career growth possibilities and low cost of living are the main deciding factors and Kerry certainly ticks all the boxes. Low cost of living means more disposable income and the benefit of additional expenditure extends to other businesses throughout the county and as a consequence improves the Kerry economy.The campaign is a direct result of a group of major Kerry businesses who have agreed to collaborate on projects that can have a positive impact within the Kerry region. The group will also focus on initiatives that encourage engagement between business, industry and the Kerry community at large. The group being led by local businesswoman Liz Maher and  supported by GHQ Design and Redchair Recruitment, consists of industry and business leaders such as Liebherr, JRI America, FeXco, Tricel, Borg Warner, TLI, Gleneagle Group, Aspengrove Solutions, Dairymaster, Supervalue, Bon Secours Hospital, Lee Strand, Alps, Ballyseedy Garden Centre, the GAA, and Kerry District League. Above all, the goal for 2017 is to sell and promote the benefits of working and living in the Kingdom. The campaign will raise awareness about the EXPO in 2017 and invite those considering moving back to Kerry to come and meet potential employers on April 9th. Last year the Kerry EXPO showcased 120 businesses throughout the county. The exhibition serves as a platform for all businesses operating within the Kerry region to promote their goods, services and products to the general public. It also provides a breeding ground for business collaborations and gives entrepreneurs and start-ups an opportunity to mix and mingle with locally based large and medium businesses. Equally business owners and managers benefit from availing of an opportunity to answer queries from potential consumers while verifying and consolidating interest in their product or service. Businesses interested in exhibiting at the expo should register their interest through the Kerry EXPO website, www.kerryexpo.ie or via the Kerry Local enterprise office. All registered businesses will receive an information pack including exhibit costs in early February.
