Five Leitrim craft and design businesses will exhibit at Showcase in the RDS from January 24 -27.
Leitrim Design and Craft Businesses will target 5,000 international buyers visiting the ‘Enterprise Zone’ at Showcase in Dublin later this month.
The small craft and design businesses, representing 22 counties around Ireland, have all been supported by their Local Enterprise Office, making it possible for them to sell to international retail buyers from more than twenty countries such as the US, France, Japan, China and Italy.
Leitrim will be represented by five craft and design businesses within the Enterprise Zone, which include: Jean Whitfield, Jean Whitfield Jewellery, Dromahair, Jo Gray, Jo Gray Collections, Drumshanbo, Alan McCluney, Leitrim Pottery, Rossinver and Roy Humphreys, Roy Humphreys Woodturning, Mohill and the Leitrim Design House.
Showcase at the RDS runs from January 24th to 27th and is the first major trade event of the year, organised by the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland .
A wide range of creative sectors will be represented within the Enterprise Zone this month, such as ceramics, knitwear, jewellery, interiors, skincare and giftware.
Joe Lowe, Leitrim Enterprise Office said, “Thanks to practical business supports through the Local Enterprise Office in the Local Authority, our local craft and design businesses are well-placed to secure substantial international orders during the four days of Showcase, helping them grow and expand into new markets.”
Frank Curran, CEO Leitrim County Council said, “Leitrim will continue to be at the forefront when it comes to craft and design in Ireland.”
