Learn, Grow, Excel 2017
Ulster Carpets was delighted to be headline sponsors for the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce Learn, Grow, Excel Conference which took place on Wednesday 14th April in Titanic Quarter, Belfast. The conference was attended by around 200 businesses and was part of a wider initiative to help boost the economy. The event was incredibly useful for large and small businesses who are already exporting or hoping to export from Northern Ireland. Nick Coburn from Ulster Carpets, along with guests from Diageo, MJM Group and Christies Direct spoke about their success in exporting from Northern Ireland.
“Northern Ireland companies must grasp opportunities around globalisation in order to help the local economy grow. For the NI economy exporting is a must-do. Unless we become stronger in exports, it will be difficult to move away from reliance on the public sector. Globalisation is here to stay – the global economy grew by 3% last year. It represents a huge opportunity for exporters and Northern Ireland has a lot to offer.” Nick Coburn, President of the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Managing Director of Ulster Carpets.
