Newry Chamber President’s Banquet Lunch Launched

Newry Chamber is delighted to announce that our Annual President’s Banquet will take place on Friday 21st October (12 noon to 3:30pm) at Canal Court Hotel & Spa.

This year’s theme will be a ‘City of Celebration’ marking 20 years of city status for Newry.

The Banquet is one of the highlights of the business year in the city, with more than 200 guests expected from organisations across the Greater Newry Area. 

Julie Gibbons, President of Newry Chamber commented:

“The Chamber has always been about businesses and individuals coming together, sharing ideas and supporting each other. We want to celebrate this collaborative spirit at the Banquet.”

“A panel of local business leaders involved in the bid for city status will look at how far we have come in 20 years. Headline Speaker, Dr Jayne Brady MBE, Head of NI Civil Service, will set out her vision for an NI of the future.”

“This is an event not to be missed as we also launch our inaugural Chamber President’s Awards in recognition of people who have made an inspirational contribution to the Greater Newry Area.”

“We are grateful to Banquet Sponsors, Ulster Bank and Canal Court Hotel & Spa for their support. We are also delighted to have Southern Area Hospice Services and St Vincent de Paul as the Charity Partners for the event.”

Mairead McParland, Director at Canal Court Hotel & Spa said:

“We are delighted to partner with Newry Chamber once again. The Canal Court, as Newry City’s largest hotel and conference facility, has a strong working relationship with the Chamber. Our professional staff will ensure a great afternoon for the Chamber’s guests and local business community.”

Caroline McKeown, Senior Relationship Manager at Ulster Bank commented:

“This event has become a firm fixture in the local business calendar and as we approach the banquet, we are looking forward to working with the team at Newry Chamber and growing our partnership even further.”

“At Ulster Bank, we want to support local businesses fulfil their ambition for success and it’s great to have such a committed partner in Newry Chamber to help us achieve this aim.”

“This region has an important role to play in driving growth for the overall economy of Northern Ireland. As we mark 20 years of Newry City status, it is a great opportunity to come together and celebrate the strength and success of the local business community.”
