8th Docklands Business Awards

We had over 150 nominations in twelve categories for this year’s Docklands Business Awards. The
entries represent the largest amount and widest spectrum of local enterprise so far to participating
in the Awards.




The fourteen-member jury has the hard task of deciding who the winners will be. They will gather
in Dublin City Council’s Economic Development Office, and the meeting will be chaired by Greg Swift,
Head of Economic Development at DCC.

Representatives from Google, Bank of Ireland, Dublin Port Company, CHQ Building, Smart Docklands,
Dublin City Council, BoConcept, Fáilte Ireland, Bord Bia, Aspira, the Local Enterprise Office, Savvi
Credit Union and the Chair and CEO of the Docklands Business Forum will participate.
The winners will be announced at the Docklands Business Awards in the Gibson Hotel on Thursday
22nd November. Our principal guest on the evening is Minister for Finance, Paschal Donohoe, TD.
