SMILE Event March 2011

You are invited to attend the upcoming SMILE Resource Exchange event on Wednesday 2 March 2011 in the Montenotte Hotel from 8.45am - 2.00pm.

This is a free business event that encourages the sharing and exchanging of resources in order to reduce costs and help the environment. Based on the concept that "one's waste could be another's resource", you will have opportunities to identify potential partnerships at this event and through our online exchange facility. Guest speakers include Simon Coveney T.D as well as some businesses who have already benefitted from the initiative.
