A delegation of 70 international buyers, vets and key industry influencers from 18 countries are in Dublin with Enterprise Ireland today to meet Irish suppliers to the equine industry.

The delegation includes visitors from Europe, North America, the Middle East, Korea, India, China and South Africa. The focus of their visit is an Equine Innovation Exhibition at Enterprise Ireland’s offices in Dublin featuring veterinary products, medical devices and services, equine nutrition and feed, feeding equipment, riding equipment, clothing and stable equipment from innovative Irish companies in the equine-related sector.

A key objective of Enterprise Ireland is to provide Irish companies with real and practical opportunities to break into new markets and grow their export sales.

This visit provides Enterprise Ireland client companies with the opportunity to meet key buyers, vets and industry influencers, and demonstrate their products and services on a one-to-one basis.

The ultimate objective is to significantly boost international sales of Irish suppliers to the global equine industry and help sustain and increase jobs in Ireland.
