The business talent of the future will be on show at the 4th Waterford Student Enterprise Expo on the morning of Thursday, December 13 with over one hundred businesses showing their enterprise ideas, products and services.

Nearly 1,000 students started the Local Enterprise Office’s Student Enterprise Awards in September of last year and now these students from fifteen secondary schools in Waterford will showcase their business ideas to the public from the W.I.T. Arena in Carriganore.

All are welcome to attend and to meet the students and see the new innovations and business ideas. WLR FM's Eamon Keane will be broadcasting Deise Today live from the event between 10am and 12 noon.

100 businesses created by transition year students from Ring, Lismore, Dungarvan, Tramore and Waterford City will be represented at this bigger and better Waterford Student Enterprise Expo, hosted by the Waterford Local Enterprise Office.

Richie Walsh of the Local Enterprise Office commented on the importance of the event, “The Expo gives the students a wonderful opportunity to experience interacting with the public and communicating their ideas.”

“We at the Local Enterprise Office in Waterford would like to invite everyone along to this FREE event on the morning of Thursday December 13 in the W.I.T. Arena. Every corner of the county will be represented, so we hope there will be lots of visitors from all over Waterford.”

The students, schools and Local Enterprise Office appeal to the public to visit the Student Enterprise Expo to support the work they have put into their businesses and encourage their efforts. Keep up to date with the students’ progress on the Waterford, Student Enterprise Awards Facebook page or follow the event on Twitter via #WfdStudentExpo.
