Madeleine Quirke, CEO Wexford Chamber, said “Wexford is punching well above its weight, the Business Awards are one of many conferences / gala events that are so excellently facilitated by our local hotels. I sincerely hope that everybody will celebrate in style with the 500 guests attending, our celebrity MC ‘Hector’ and our own local lads Mick, Matthew, Leo & Suds who are ‘Corner Boy’. The Wexford Business Awards are hosted in association with Wexford Chamber, Wexford County Council, the EPA, South East Radio and The Wexford People.

Karl Fitzpatrick, President Wexford Chamber, said “A great night of celebration is ahead of us tomorrow evening as we award some of the best businesses in the South East. Wexford is thriving and, no matter what challenges lie ahead, I am confident that all of the many advantages Wexford has to offer will continue to attract new and innovative investors to our town”.
