Julia Lynes, who is Network Cork’s Outgoing President, stated “Christmas seems to have started earlier than ever and our Christmas Fair is to help our members get organised really early for Christmas this year.  Feedback was really strong last year for the event and people loved the fact that they were supporting local businesses.  It will be a one stop shop for Christmas gifts and a great showcase for our members.  Also with the new location at The Clarion Hotel, we are hoping more of the general public will join us to start their Christmas shopping and support local businesses at the same time.”


For Network Members, there is no fee for exhibition and for any Cork businesses wishing to participate in this event, there are a limited number of Exhibition Stands available at minimal cost.  For further information on Network Cork and on the event, visit www.networkcork.com
