The inaugural Into the West Expo – a showcase of the magic of the West of Ireland which takes place over two days in the RDS next February – will be formally launched by the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Christy Burke, tomorrow.
Over 200 exhibitors, drawn from business, industry, leisure, education, crafts, arts, food and beverages and culture, will participate in the event under one roof on Saturday and Sunday, 21st and 22nd February.
Organisers say the exhibitors, drawn from Donegal to Kerry, represent the proud, innovative and dynamic face of a new West. The exhibition, expected to become an annual showcase, will also feature seminars and talks focusing on the links between Dublin and the West, with over 50 live events. The organisers expect over 20,000 people to visit the RDS over the weekend.
The launch takes place at the Mansion House, Dublin, at 12.15pm.
