Call for Posters!

We invite you to take the opportunity to showcase your social enterprise, by having a poster at the dedicated exhibition space at our conference.

This is a great promotional opportunity for your organisation, as conference attendees from around Ireland will be viewing the posters in a high-traffic area throughout the day.

Your poster will provide a talking point for connecting with other social enterprises, policy makers, and national networks. It will highlight the important work your organisation is doing, and open up conversations for potential collaboration with other attendees.

Submit your posters today to ensure your spot in our social enterprise showcase! Please email for the template or download it below. Final submissions are due by 23rd August 2022.
