Business Opportunities at the 2016 Maritime Festival

Food, Fashion and Beauty Take Centre Stage in 2016

WhFashion & Food - Maritime Festival Opportunitiesen we say “something for everyone” we’re not joking” starts Karen Healy, Producer of The Irish Maritime Festival. “Imagine all the fun and diversity of the market at The Ploughing Championships … well that’s what we are aiming to create alongside the River Boyne.

The Festival, taking place on 9-10th July, offers great opportunities for local businesses to showcase all they have to offer to an audience of over 40,000 visitors.

Renowned Food Consultant and founder of The Real Irish Food Company Bronagh Conlon is co-ordinating the Artisan Food, Craft Beer and Distilling Zone. “How often do you get the chance to promote your produce to such a huge audience? There are brilliant opportunities for local producers to showcase and sell their product to Festival goers but don’t delay booking because places will fill fast.”

Fashion, health and beauty will be a major feature of the Festival in 2016 and this creates more opportunities for local business. Karen Healy explains:

Fashion blogger @JamesPatrice and make-up guru @MakeUpFairyPro will host a fashion health and beauty showcase all weekend. They’ll be sharing top tips for grooming, make up and styling. Rising design star Tina Williams will also showcase her new fashion collection. There will be product demonstrations and “hacks and how-to” sessions all weekend with leading hair and beauty stylists. The dedicated Fashion, Health and Beauty zone is sponsored by Fuschia and has a limited number of places for businesses wishing to trade.  So if you are a local business in natural health products or services or if you sell fashion or accessories talk to us today about booking a stand for your business.”
