Sligo well represented at Showcase event

Local craft was showcased for international buyers last week at the RDS in Dublin. Sligo craft businesses were well represented at the spectacular show.

Over fifty craftspeople and artists, including local businesses, were supported by their local Enterprise Board

Artists, craftspeople and designers from eighteen Sligo County and City Enterprise Board areas met international buyers at the balcony area at Showcase this year. The Creative Expo, which was organised by the Crafts Council of Ireland, is seen as one of the most important trade events for Ireland's craft sector. Many of the Enterprise Board-supported craftspeople along the balcony area of the Main Hall were first-time exhibitors and attracted considerable attention from the 5,500 buyers in attendance.
