ABOUT THE EVENT

We were overwhelmed and grateful for all the support for The Real Deal 2019 event at Goffs again this year. The event booked out with over 1,000+ registrants and the majority of whom were SMEs who were curious to learn. We wish to thank everybody for their contribution.
Thanks to those who supported our Shine A Light fundraiser for Focus Ireland. Renatus, Fitzgerald Power and Bank of Ireland raised just under €16k on our fundraising page. A very worthwhile cause so thank you again. Donations can still be made here.
