The event is organised by stakeholders in the Northwest region to promote the notion that a global career can be had in the region while still getting the best out of ‘local living’. Eventgoers will get the chance to meet with the executives leading both the indigenous and multinational companies in the region, including Optum, AbbVie, VistaMed, and SL Systems, among others. In all, Donegal, Sligo, and Leitrim are home to over 50 multinational companies.

There will also be local authorities present to inform eventgoers on the more practical side of living in the Northwest, such as information on relocating, public transport, and housing. Furthermore, Atlantic Technological University will have a presence at the event to highlight the latest research projects in the region.

Remarking on the event, Minister of State for Trade Promotion and Digital Transformation, Dara Calleary T.D., said: “As we see a continuing rise in employment figures in high value jobs in the Northwest, this event offers a unique chance for senior executives to engage directly with industry leaders in the region to explore the current roles and potential future business opportunities.”

The event will take place in the Westbury Hotel on the 9th of February. Those interested can register for the event here.
